1 Corinthians 4: Power and Not Word
Paul explains that as a disciple of Christ, and even more importantly as an Apostle of the Lord we are servants of God. We must be found faithful and judge not those around us. Paul explains that we “…labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it.” (1 Corinthians 4:12)
Paul explains that the “…kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.” (1 Corinthians 4:20) This means that Authority to Minister in Christ’s Church is important.
