1 Corinthians 4:1 — How Would You Describe An Evangelist or Bible Teacher?

 

 

Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 1 Corinthians 4:1 KJV

 

Sometimes we put preachers on a pedestal, is this right? Well respect is important but Paul explains in this verse his two main roles:

  1. a servant of Christ and
  2. a steward of the mysteries of God.

 

May the Lord give us grace to see ourselves as God sees us.

1 Corinthians 3:16 – A Church or a Temple?

 

 

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV

 

Here is an amazing factGod actually is with us whenever we meet as a local church.

This truth should blow our minds away but it often seems to pass us by. Imagine what church meetings would be like if it really gripped our souls that God was present every time we meet. It would make a vast difference.

May God help us to appreciate this great truth.

1 Corinthians 3:12-15 – God’s Church Building Program

 

 

Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 1 Corinthians 3:12-15 KJV

 

We often hear about church planting programs and it often sounds quite impressive. We plant seeds, we water the seed and God gives the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6). How do things go from the point where the Lord calls people out of the world and establishes a local church??

Watch this video to see how God defines church building. It is important to be clear on what is pleasing to the Lord.

Trust the Lord blesses His word to you.

1 Corinthians 3:10-11 – Building for God

 

 

According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:10-11 KJV

 

Who decides how a church functions? Should we really talk in terms of ‘so and so founded this church’?

How do we know what is good and what is bad when it comes to planting and developing a new church?

1 Corinthians 3:4-9 – Workers with God

 

 

For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. 1 Corinthians 3:4-9 KJV

 

When facing the challenge of popularity in your service for God how do you cope? Listen to this vblog to see that the work is really God’s and all glory should go to Him alone. It is a recurring theme in Paul’s letters to the Corinthians.

vlog: 1 Corinthians 2:6-8 – Information for the Initiated

 

 

Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:6-8 KJV

 

Ever wondered why one person reads the Bible and understands it, yet someone else can’t see what it says?

How is this possible? One is a believer and has the Spirit of God, the other is in darkness and cannot see.

Watch this vblog to see how God communicates truth to His people.

vlog: 1 Corinthians 2:5 – Saving Faith

 

 

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:5 KJV

 

You hear people say at times, “I have my faith.” Or others say – “I wish I had your faith.” Again you might hear someone say “as long as we believe something we will be ok.”

Are these statements true or do they just comfort us in our delusional way of thinking? I am not sure what you would say but when I come to the Word of God I find some very specific teaching about this.

I am praying that you will be helped by considering this truth with me.

Jottings – Freedom From Shame

Jottings

Regarding 2 Timothy 1:12 – “Paul’s example of freedom from shame was intended as an incentive to his younger fellow missionary to show the same confidence and endurance. He who is conscious of pleasing God has no reason for feelings of shame through experiencing any form of suffering in consequence. Faithfulness to God frees the believer from bondage to human opinion, regard, and reward.”

W. E. Vine, Collected Writings of W.E. Vine: 2 Timothy. (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson, 1996); electronic ed. (Logos.)
