‘Meet the perspective needed at the church in Corinth’ (1 Corinthians 4:1-5)

After the Apostle Paul took time to dismantle the false edifice that the Corinthians were putting in place around gospel preachers in 1 Corinthians 3, in the next few verses of the 4th chapter, (1 Corinthians 4:1-5), the Apostle took time to correct their perspective. Gospel preachers aren’t everything. In fact, they are just servants and stewards, lowly ranked while the One they serve – well that’s a different story! The Lord Jesus is everything! The Corinthians ought not confuse the gospel preachers with the gospel message. One comes and goes. The other is eternal!
