1 Corinthians 4 The Cure for the Divided Church

The Christians in Corinth had their opinions and they started to rate their leaders according to their personalities and their so called, gifted-ness. Instead of seeing them as fellow workers they stood back and made their judgements. One admired Apollos another Paul and another Peter. They would argue about who they thought was more impressive as spiritual leader. What Paul does in the first part of 1 Corinthians is to make it clear that they are all fellow workers. In fact, complimentary workers. He begins by saying that who after all is Paul or Apollos or Peter? The conclusion – “Only Servants.”
