First Corinthians 4:1–5 brings clarity to how God evaluates His ministers. You won’t find Paul talking about popularity, personality, and numbers playing a role in the Lord’s perspective—they should therefore play no role in ours. Paul thought of himself, first of all, as a “servant of Christ.” He set the parameters of his obedience. God did not call him to be innovative but obedient and faithful. For Paul, success in ministry depended upon pleasing Christ. Paul also understood that his work in service to Christ was that of a steward of divine mysteries—a truth that was previously hidden but is now widely known by divine revelation and apostolic proclamation. Paul and the other apostles openly declared these mysteries. Like household stewards or managers, they administered freely the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27). The desire and purpose of The Master’s Seminary will be to equip you to be an effective servant of Christ and to be a faithful steward of the Word of God.
