Day 248 - 1 Corinthians 4

V. 3 The Corinthian assembly or church was going on so badly that Paul says that it mattered little to him what their opinion of him was. And he adds that he could not even trust his own opinions of himself.
V. 4 Means that he didn't know of anything in his life that was wrong. But he adds that this was not the deciding thing. It was the Lord (the Master of his life) who decided. But he did not have a bad conscience. Do we?
V. 7 If one believer has more ability than another to do something for the Lord, it comes from God. Every believer has been given a special job to do (Mark 13:3434For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. (Mark 13:34)).
V. 14-21 The Corinthians were very critical of Paul, and while he lets this go on, he warns them of the power he has from God, as God's apostle.
