Cross Church : Divine Evaluation
Unfortunately, it appears churches and believers have tried to ascertain, ‘Who is the greatest?’ The disciples tried to do it around Jesus. Now, the Corinthians are advocating apostles against one another. Nothing has changed. Pastors, thinkers, and members judge the credibility and health of another ministry based on budgets, bodies, and buildings. In 1 Corinthians 4.1-5, Paul is clear. None of that matters. Men and women have not been equipped to judge. God calls and equips. Therefore, servants will be held accountable above all by him. It doesn’t mean we can live carelessly. Quite the opposite actually! We must live every day to please the Lord above family, friends, etc.
