"What then?" Paul asks, as he concludes a lengthy section on public worship by giving very practical instructions that will bring order into the disorder that existed in the church at Corinth. In 1 Corinthians 14:26-40 we see three key truths that are to shape and regulate our corporate worship of God. We will also note the two themes of edification and of self-control that run throughout Paul's words to a church whose worship did not edify those who worshiped or honor the God who was worshiped.
