INTRODUCTION:

Ø Paul had reminded the Corinthians that they served a faithful God (1:9).

Ø He also declared that God can be depended on to be with them in any trial (10:13).

Ø He further encouraged them to be zealous with the assurance that their labor will not go unrewarded (15:58).

Ø Every believer is a minister of Christ and a steward of the mysteries of God (4:1).

o “Mysteries of God” = Truths that God has revealed through the Holy Spirit.

o Human reasoning or laboratory processes cannot discover them.

Ø “Steward” = manager, supervisor, administrator.

Ø The prerequisite to being a good steward is faithfulness.

o Not required to be brilliant—but FAITHFUL.

o Not required to be intelligent—but FAITHFUL.

o Not required to be articulate—but FAITHFUL.

o Not required to be literate—but FAITHFUL.

o Not required to be handsome—but FAITHFUL.

o Not required to be eloquent—but FAITHFUL.

Ø Faithfulness is the will of God for us and is possible.
