When Pastor Paul heard that the church in Corinth was being dismissive and disrespectful to leadership, he wrote to them to address the issues that needed correcting. He did this not because he took delight in finding faults, but because he was accountable to God as a steward for the health of this church.
Yes, Paul was a servant—an errand boy for Jesus. But he was also a steward—responsible for something that wasn’t his (the church in Corinth).
Like Paul, God has called us to be servants and has asked us to be His stewards of the things He has entrusted to our care. Here are some questions to think about as you meditate on your role as servant and steward in the areas God has called you to:
1. What has been entrusted to your care?
2. Who entrusted it to you?
3. Who are you accountable to?
4. What does it mean to be found faithful?
5. Why is it so important to be a servant-leader?
6. How are humility and honesty connected?
7. How can you serve Christ AND submit to others?
