    1 CORINTHIANS 4:15 for though you have ten thousand instructors in CHRIST yet have you not many fathers for in CHRIST JESUS I have begotten you through the gospel --4:16-- wherefore I beseech you be followers of me 1 TIMOTHY 1:11 ACCORDING TO THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF THE BLESSED GOD WHICH WAS COMMITTED TO MY TRUST

    1 CORINTHIANS 4:3 but with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you --- of mans judgement --- yea I judge not even mine own self --4:4-- for I know nothing of by myself yat am I not hereby justified --- BUT HE THAT JUDGETH ME IS THE LORD --- JOHN 8:16 and yet if I judge MY judgement is true for I am not alone but I and THE FATHER that sent ME

    1 CORINTHIANS 4:18 NOW SOME ARE PUFFED UP AS THOUGH I WOULD NOT COME TO YOU --4:19-- but I will come to you shortly if THE LORD will and will know --- not the speech of them that are puffed up --- but the power PSALM 18:46 THE LORD LIVETH AND BLESSED BE MY ROCK AND LET THE GOD OF MY SALVATION BE EXALTED PSALM 119:155 SALVATION IS FAR FROM THE WICKED FOR THEY SEEK NOT THY STATUTES

    Verse 7~We can only reflect the things that we have been given so no one has the right to boast in anything. All good things come from Jehovah God.

    RE: 1Cor. 4:3-5...Perhaps this is reminder to NOT judge ea other or oneself, because perhaps Paul is fully aware of the job that 'accuser of the brethren' already does, by accusing the brethren n ourselves before God day n night, it says. We need to remember who n whose we are in Christ!

    1 Cor 4:15 We need more Fathers to disciple the younger generation of people coming into the churches...like I heard once, a Shepherd has to be able to get close enough to the sheep to get ticks off..Paul n Jesus n gang hung out in homes 2gether, no clicks, no programs-1 big happy fam of God..knew ea other by name! The division 2day is sad..They"ll know were His disciples by our love! Not knowledg

    1 Corinthians 4: 3-5 are some of the MOST freeing verses I think I've read! It's telling us stop judging each other n ourselves because we don't know the motives for our actions, n only G-d sees our hearts, our intent! What a merciful heavenly Father! And speaking of Fathers, I also love verse 15, where I believe he is expounding on the importance of relationship in churches, not just pew warming!

    I'm trying to read KJV. Really strange words 'the filth of the world' are worth thinking about. We, "the best of the world" can be 'the filth', or, thinking about ourselves too high can't see anything, that we are loved, and only look and ask for 'carnal'.? Funny. Let's look for meekness withourt spirit - and we will find arrogance, How to understand and interiorate these words. Thank you.

    Amen Brother, Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:
  • Douglas Gilbert Wells
    Man most does not like being corrected at any time. But that is what our Heavenly Father does because love us that much.

    There is lots of teachers, pastors and preachers that preach the Word of God. We say to ourselves, who are we going to trust. Apostle Paul said, trust him. 15 For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

    Ray; Paul didn't want anyone to think he was an angel; but he was commending the eager and reverent reception he received from the Corinthians, because of the Word he was bringing to them. The wisdom that God gave to Paul, He is willing to give to you too; and the way all the Prophets and Apostles knew the Lord, and wrote of Him; He will give to you also, when you follow on with God like they did.
  • Ray321
    Galatians 4:14 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. If Paul wants us to think of him like a Angel of God, that is saying a lot who Paul is. The Word speaks for it self. Praise the Lord.
  • Ray321
    15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
  • Ray321
    Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel paul said my gospel. That means ,Pual follow Jesus and we follow for our Apostle today, Amen. I speak to all that want to know the truth in the Word.
  • A disciple
    Ray321; Again! Paul IS NOT the one we are supposed to follow, as if to have less or no respect for ALL the Lord's servants. Paul was truly a mighty man of God, and appointed a high place of authority, for the extension of the Lord's kingdom. But NO MAN is supposed to be set up exclusively as our leader, but the Lord Jesus Christ; and all the rest of us are brethren; some great some small. Jn 1:36!

    1 Corinth 4:15-16 For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me. Paul was warning believers not to just trust anybody with the gospel. Paul was the one that was teaching the gospel the way Jesus wanted him to do. That's why Paul said follow me.

    Verse 4 shows that we may not be aware of some of our faults, but that does not mean we don't have them. God is our judge and we want to find out what his standards of right and wrong are.
  • Jeffrey
    Bottom line is growing in the knowledge of the truth which can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit and then one day you graduate just like high school... like Paul said its no longer I that Lives but is Christ that lives... meaning he doesn't leave he stays that's having the mind of Christ.. don't let nobody fool you its true its a permanent event check out 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 Awesome

    1st cor v 4 exposes mans pride
  • Lupta for verse 20
    Its so true it 's all glory to Jesus his power from the Holy Ghost it 's not us
  • Tsegah Mawutor for verse 20
    The kingdom of God comes as a result of the demonstration of the power of the Holy Ghost,not just by the educated words of men
  • Nanah wusu for verse 20
    The kingdom of God is not in the eloquency of preaching,but in practical demonstration of the power of the Holy Ghost to heal, deliver,impart,bless,ect.
  • Greg
    I believe Grace is a 2 part. 1.we must believe an accept Jesus died for our sins. 2. we are not saved by our works, but with the spirit in us, we will not want to do what he has taught us, an live right. if it was only a believing in him, then we could do anything we wanted too, as some people think
  • Josephat for verse 20
    The kingdom of God is not in word,means that its not like sharing a story about what happened. But bringing the supernatural into natural by the power of the holy spirit that raised jesus from the dead.
  • Rev. Autrey
    I Corinthians 4 5 says this 4 My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God. Let 's examine what Paul is saying here. First, he says that the Lord is the one who judges him. Then he says that when the Lord comes he will bring light to the world, and then as God he will give us praises. What could be more clear. The Lord Jesus and God are the same. What I am saying is, if Jesus is not God, his judging the world would be on no consequence. Only God has the right to tell us what to do, and to punish us if we do not do it. Why can 't we see this, and why have our preachers failed to teach us this. Paul very plainly calls Jesus GOD OUR SAVIOR in the Book of Titus. He ways it this way We should live in this evil world with self control, right conduct, and devotion to God, while we look forward to that wonderful event when the glory of our great GOD AND SAVIOR, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. People let 's understand who Jesus is. The Father, God 's other personality is not the way God deals with is, and is not the way God talks to us and saves us. But Jesus is, and we must know and understand this if we want him to save us. God bless you!
