Dividing Over Church Teachers (Pt.7): The Cross and Christian Leadership
Passage: 1 Corinthians 4:6–4:21
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)
*This sermon owes a debt to D.A. Carson’s “The Cross and Christian Ministry”.
