    13 ORDER IN THE ANCIENT CHURCH

    “BUILT upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner-stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:20-22.COOD 61.1

    “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” “Let all things be done decently and in order.” 1 Corinthians 14:33, 40.COOD 61.2

    From these scriptures it is evident that in order for the Lord’s church to move in harmony, and to grow into this unity and love acceptable with him, its members should be “fitly framed together.” What can produce such a condition except each one find his proper place in the church; and with cheerfulness, as good soldiers of Jesus Christ, perform the duties connected with such position?COOD 61.3
