God's Mysteries

02 June 2018

Scripture:

So then you must perceive us—not as leaders of factions, but as servants of the Anointed One, those who have been entrusted with God’s mysteries. 2 The most important quality of one entrusted with such secrets is that they are faithful and trustworthy. 3 But personally, I’m not the least bit concerned if I’m judged by you or any verdict I receive from any human court. In fact, I don’t even assume to be my own judge, 4 even though my conscience is clear. But that doesn’t mean I stand acquitted before the Lord, for the only judge I care about is him! 5 So resist the temptation to pronounce premature judgment on anything before the appointed time when all will be fully revealed. Instead, wait until the Lord makes his appearance, for he will bring all that is hidden in darkness to light and unveil every secret motive of everyone’s heart. Then, when the truth is known, each will receive praise from God. (1 Corinthians 4:1-5 The Passion)

To be servants of the Anointed One; to be faithful and trustworthy are qualities that should be desired in those who are leaders and teachers. It would be hard for them/us to truly share God’s mysteries if they/we are only concerned about themselves/ourselves, or trying to juggle for position and praise. And then there is the judging that also gets in the way.

Father God, help me, help us to be the faithful and trustworthy servants of yours. You are willing to trust us with Your mysteries and we want to share them without judgment of others or trying to make ourselves look better than others. AMEN

Yes, what delight comes to those who follow God’s ways! Their pleasure and passion is remaining true to the Word of “I Am.” They will stand firm like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design. Psalm 1
