This week, Pastor Brad Beers starts us off in chapter 4 of 1 Corinthians. Paul is encouraging the Corinthians to view him and other apostles as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God, emphasizing the importance of faithfulness in their roles. He discusses not judging prematurely, as only the Lord’s judgment is definitive, reminding the Corinthians that their talents and faith come not from themselves, but are gifts from God. This passage challenges the believers to humility, to recognize their dependence on God for their abilities, and to acknowledge that no one has any reason to boast over others.
