1 Corinthians 4:1-2 Assume for a moment that the church (the people not the building) is the manager of the Gospel. Christ is the church’s boss and has tasked the church, as managers, to dispense the Gospel to the world it find itself in. How well would Westfield fair in an evaluation? The unfortunate truth is that Paul makes this exact comparison in his letter to the Corinthians where he writes A person should think of us in this way: as servants of Christ and managers of the mysteries of God. In this regard, it is required that managers be found faithful. The language that is used here is very strong. The manager is required to be found faithful. The managers are not expected to be successful but rather they are expected to be obedient. If this is a requirement, it would stand to reason that the failure to manage well would be a sin. So, as a manager who is responsible for the spread of the Gospel would Christ find you to be faithful? If not, repent.
