From “Strength” to Strength — 1 Corinthians 4:1-21
Shaun continues the series on Corinthians with Paul’s somewhat sarcastic conclusion about how much status we have from the “knowledge”, “wisdom”, and “spirituality” we believe we have. In fact, nothing that we have that is worth anything to God has been from our own effort. Since we have received it all (not making it or earning it), we cannot boast in a worldly way about such things. Jesus didn’t call use to gain and wield earthly power, so in order to look like Jesus, we need to base our measure of strength and power on God.
