Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 3:22

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 3:22


3:22 Whether Paul or Apollos, or Cephas - We are all equally yours, to serve you for Christ's sake. Or the world - This leap from Peter to the world greatly enlarges the thought, and argues a kind of impatience of enumerating the rest. Peter and every one in the whole world, however excellent in gifts, or grace, or office, are also your servants for Christ's sake. Or life, or death - These, with all their various circumstances, are disposed as will be most for your advantage. Or things present - On earth. Or things to come - In heaven. Contend, therefore, no more about these little things; but be ye united in love, as ye are in blessings.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 3:22


1Co 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas. See 1Co 1:12 3:5. Or the world. The world is not to be the master, but the servant of God's children. Or life. Life is given to do God's work and to insure life eternal. Or death. To the saint "death is gain" (Php 1:21). Or things present. These, whatsoever they are, "shall work together for good to them that love God" (Ro 8:28). Or things to come. The things to come to the Christian are the presence of Christ, and the joys of the New Jerusalem. All are yours. What a climax!
