Stewards of the mysteries of God!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi
Now listen to me my friend;

"Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God" 1 Corinthians 4:1

What are we?

We are servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries or the wisdom of God, nothing more. We represent God.

I know people have revelations, there is nothing wrong with that at all, but let it not be "beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other" 1 Corinthians 4:6. "For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power" 1 Corinthians 4:20. Power as in the demonstration of the wisdom of God.

Learn from the Holy Spirit. We’re coworkers with him, but the Holy Spirit, his job is to lead us, and guide us into all truth, he does not present his own ideas, things we see happening among us who preach today, but the Holy Ghost only passes on to you what he has heard.

Let no man deceive himself, let no man glory in men either, and "Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost" John 20:21-22.

You house the Spirit of God folks,  so that he can help you serve God according to his will, and you, me and the Spirit of God are coworkers or stewards of the mysteries of God, we together complete the purposes of God. The Spirit of God, is there to remind us of what our ways are in Christ, that as we go about teaching others we may remain in truth, and doing so.

Paul said, "...brethren....learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another" for it’s soon, the Lord will come, "who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God" 1 Corinthians 4:5. None should be puffed up against the other, we are all servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.

If you are on the contrary, he asked, "who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?" 1 Corinthians 4:7. What are you so puffed up about?

We’re just God’s servants, each of us with certain special abilities, and with our help people believe.

God bless,
Laurence

The weapons of our warfare!

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong" 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV

The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God, they are in the simplicity of Christ, in the fruit of the Spirit; "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law" Galatians 5:22-23.

"If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities" 2 Corinthians 11:30. "So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye m…

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts!

Pursue love for if you don't love, you’re nothing; love the brotherhood!

No matter what you say, what you believe, and what you do, you’re nothing without love.

" Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away" 1 Corinthians 13:8. Yes all these will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever, "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" 1 Corinthians 13:13.

If you didn’t love others, with all that you do, you would only be making noise.

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things" 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. With this we know we lov…
