1 CORINTHIANS 4.1-24 - SKETCHING. BY FABIAN MASSA.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

In this chapter, Paul poses several questions to the Corinthians.

4.1-2 SERVANTS AND ADMINISTRATORS OF THE MYSTERIES OF GOD All believers are servants of Christ and faithful stewards of the "Mysteries of God." SERVING GOD DOES NOT IMPLY LIVING WITHIN THE CHURCH AND HAVING A "MINISTRY TO NATIONS": A believer serves God when he assumes his different roles in life, acting according to the Word of God. As an example:

to. A man who does his best at work, is serving his neighbor, his employer, himself and his family, while leaving well who really serves Christ. (Ephesians 6: 6)

b. The same man then teaches the Word at home to his wife and children, not only in his devotional, but also in his lifestyle. (Deuteronomy 6: 1)

c. The same man prays and intercedes for his family (Revelation 1: 6)

d. The same man fulfills his citizen obligations, pays his taxes and lives according to the Law of his Country, respecting it in all its acts (Romans 13: 1-10)

and. An administrator of the Mysteries of God is someone who has taken care of these "Mysteries", that is, someone who prepares and trains for the exercise of his ministry as a worker, active member of the society that blesses with his life and his work to his Country, to his fellow men, to his family and to his Church.

4.3-4 SELF-EXAMINATION Paul speaks of himself not judging himself, not condemning himself, although he constantly examines himself in relation to the Word.

4.5 DO NOT CONDEMN He warns why one should not condemn someone, leaving that topic to the Lord, because only Christ knows the intentions of the heart. It is clear that the Apostle speaks of not judging-condemning the person and if instead explains that one must determine if something is good / convenient or bad / inconvenient, for example in:
to. But he who is spiritual judges everything, even though he himself is not subject to anyone's judgment. 1 Corinthians 2:15
b. Certainly I, as absent in body, but present in spirit, and as present I have judged whom it has done. 1 Corinthians 3.3
c. 2 Or do you not know that the saints are to judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge very small things? 3 Or do you not know that we are to judge the angels? How much more the things of this life? 1 Corinthians 6.2-3
d. Therefore it is not only licit to judge whether the thing is good or bad, but even necessary and obligatory to do so. In the same way, it is obligatory to make him see the brother (Bible in hand and conveniently) if something he does is wrong, even if the brother is the pastor of the Church. What should not be done is to condemn, to dictate sentence, because that is something that belongs only to the Lord.

4.6-7 DO NOT CREATE A "SPECIAL BEING" Any gift, it is precisely that, a gift, a gift and all good comes from the Father of the Lights, (James 1:17) That is why Paul asks them, what do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?

4: 8-14 COMPARING STATES Paul establishes a state comparison between the Corinthians (who were rich and comfortable) and the Apostles (who were poor and uncomfortable) and the key is in verse 8: "You are already satisfied, you are already rich, without us reigning. And ye would reign, that we also might reign with you. "The Corinthians did not share in their blessings to the Apostles, but enjoyed them alone without regard to them.

4.15-21 DISCOVERING THE APOSTOLIC AUTHORITY The Corinthians did not know Paul's authority as pastor and apostle. He sends Timothy to lead the Sana'a Doctrine and promises that he will go to see them to put in order those who were misaligned.
