Servant & Stewart

PowerPoint Presentation:

With a population of 400,000 and being a prominent center of commerce in the Mediterranean world, it was a place for all sorts of vice . An example of its immorality was found in the temple of Venus (Aphrodite), which hosted 1000 priestesses dedicated to prostitution in the name of religion. The city's close proximity to the city of Athens probably added the problem of intellectualism . As noticed in the epistle, such an environment had its effect upon the church in Corinth. It is amazing that a church existed at all in such a city.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Do you see how Paul is resting his soul in the Gospel. 1Cr 4:3 ESV - But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. 1Cr 4:4 ESV - For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me.

God is after your heart. Why do you do, what you do ? 1Cr 4:5 ESV - Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God.

Who do you think you are? The Corinthian church division was an issue of status. 1Cr 4:7 ESV - For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it? 1Cr 4:8 ESV - Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! Without us you have become kings! And would that you did reign, so that we might share the rule with you!

Apostles on Exhibit; Servants of the Gospel. 1Cr 4:9 ESV - For I think that God has exhibited us apostles as last of all, like men sentenced to death, because we have become a spectacle to the world, to angels, and to men. 1Cr 4:10 ESV - We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute. 1Cr 4:11 ESV - To the present hour we hunger and thirst, we are poorly dressed and buffeted and homeless, 1Cr 4:12 ESV - and we labor, working with our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; 1Cr 4:13 ESV - when slandered, we entreat. We have become, and are still, like the scum of the world, the refuse of all things.

Imitate an Apostle! 1Cr 4:14 ESV - I do not write these things to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children. 1Cr 4:15 ESV - For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 1Cr 4:16 ESV - I urge you, then, be imitators of me. 1Cr 4:17 ESV - That is why I sent you Timothy, my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach them everywhere in every church.

Paul keeps teaching the same stuff everywhere, Gospel = Obey.
