ACF – How to set the menu order for the relationship field

So, I’ve got a relationship field where I select a certain amount of posts to show on the home page. What I am trying to achieve is to apply the menu order of the posts as they are in the back end so that they appear in that order on the front end.

For example, the below screenshot is how the posts are ordered in the relationship field back end of ACF:

Menu Order - Back end

But on the front end, public facing, they appear in this order:

Post 1

Post 2

Post 3

Here’s a sample of the query I’m using to show the relationship posts on the page in case that helps:

$ids = get_field('homepage_lineup_new', 'option', false, false); 

$query = new WP_Query(array(
'post_type'         => 'post',
'posts_per_page'    => 15,
'post__in'          => $ids
));

Thanks!
