The Faithful Manager

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:1 -

A person should think of us in this way: as servants of Christ and managers of the mysteries of God.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:2 -

In this regard, it is required that managers be found faithful.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:3 -

It is of little importance to me that I should be judged by you or by any human court.[fn] In fact, I don’t even judge myself.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:4 -

For I am not conscious of anything against myself, but I am not justified by this. It is the Lord who judges me.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:5 -

So don’t judge anything prematurely, before the Lord comes, who will both bring to light what is hidden in darkness and reveal the intentions of the hearts. And then praise will come to each one from God.

The Apostles’ Example of Humility

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:6 -

Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying: “Nothing beyond what is written.” The purpose is that none of you will be arrogant, favoring one person over another.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:7 -

For who makes you so superior? What do you have that you didn’t receive? If, in fact, you did receive it, why do you boast as if you hadn’t received it?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:8 -

You are already full! You are already rich! You have begun to reign as kings without us ​— ​and I wish you did reign, so that we could also reign with you!

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:9 -

For I think God has displayed us, the apostles, in last place, like men condemned to die: We have become a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to people.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:10 -

We are fools for Christ, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored!

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:11 -

Up to the present hour we are both hungry and thirsty; we are poorly clothed, roughly treated, homeless;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:12 -

we labor, working with our own hands. When we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:13 -

when we are slandered, we respond graciously. Even now, we are like the scum of the earth, like everyone’s garbage.

Paul’s Fatherly Care

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:14 -

I’m not writing this to shame you, but to warn you as my dear children.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:15 -

For you may have countless instructors in Christ, but you don’t have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:16 -

Therefore I urge you to imitate me.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:17 -

This is why I have sent Timothy to you. He is my dearly loved and faithful child in the Lord. He will remind you about my ways in Christ Jesus, just as I teach everywhere in every church.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:18 -

Now some are arrogant, as though I were not coming to you.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:19 -

But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will find out not the talk, but the power of those who are arrogant.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:20 -

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:21 -

What do you want? Should I come to you with a rod, or in love and a spirit of gentleness?
