1 Corinthians 4

Paul has been on the same train of thought for a few chapters, and here in chapter 4, he’s wrapping up those thoughts before shifting to the really fun and exciting topic, sex. But we aren’t there yet. That’s tomorrow. So bear with me today and we’ll get there…

He tells the Corinthians he doesn’t want them to imagine him as something he is not. He isn’t a master of Christ, or flawless, or a gatekeeper, or anything of the sort. He is a servant, a guide, and nothing more. Basically don’t put him or his fellow laborers on a pedestal. Put Christ on a pedestal.

As he continues, I just love a couple of his one liners and thoughts. He’s talking about how God will bring everything — inner motives, purposes, prayers — all out into the open. He’s talking about all the comparing and competing going on. He’s talking about how everything is a gift from God, so don’t get all haughty. And then he says this: why all the bickering…

You already have more access to God than you can handle.

WHOA!

And then, a little later, this…

God’s Way is not a matter of mere talk; it’s an empowered life.

Yeah buddy!

Let those two things marinate for a bit: God’s Way is not a matter of mere talk; it’s an empowered life. You already have more access to God than you can handle.

You already have more access to God than you can handle…
