What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret. But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God. Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. If a revelation is made to another sitting there, let the first be silent. For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged, and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.
As in all the churches of the saints,

We need to get out of our own way and let God be the guiding force in all that we say and do. Understandably, that is so much easier to say than to do. Whatever is done in worship should be done in love and in a manner that it is beneficial to all who are present. The goal of worship is first and foremost to bring glory to God. A secondary goal would be to help provide encouragement to other believers and to help provide unity within the body of Christ. What a difference it would make if our worship focus was first on God, then on others, and last on ourselves.
