Dividing Over Church Teachers (Pt.7): The Cross and Christian Leadership

September 19, 2021 Speaker: Series: 1 Corinthians

Passage: 1 Corinthians 4:6–21

1: An apostolic rebuke (6-13)

  • The apostles—not the Corinthians—model God’s wisdom, because the apostles live in light of the cross.


2: Paul’s fatherly appeal, and warning to imitate him (14-21)

Christian leadership means encouraging—and if necessary, enforcing—the way of the cross among the people of God.

  • Encouraging the believers (14–17)
  • Warning the believers (18–21)
