Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by a human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. 4 For I know of nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God. — 1 Corinthians 4:1-5.
Paul stresses that, in the light of the fact that the Lord will shed His light on the dark deeds of Christians when He judges their works, we must be faithful stewards. Faithfulness is more important than anything else to a Christian. [The Bible Panorama.]
