Bible: 1 Corinthians 4:1-5

The Apostles’ Ministry

4:1 One 1  should think about us this way – as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 4:2 Now what is sought in stewards is that one be found faithful. 4:3 So for me, it is a minor matter that I am judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. 4:4 For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not acquitted because of this. The one who judges me is the Lord. 4:5 So then, do not judge anything before the time. Wait until the Lord comes. He will 2  bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the motives of hearts. Then each will receive recognition 3  from God.
