Mysteries and Secrets – Day 5

1 Corinthians 4:1

This then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed.

The Thought

The Corinthian church were being split by the fact that some of them had become Christians through the teachings of Paul others through Peter. How many churches today have similar problems? People go when their favourite preacher is there, others will not go because their favourite preacher is not there! Paul speaks forcefully against this by saying that he and Peter are both mere humans teaching the mysteries that God has revealed to them. It is the same for all genuine priests, preachers and pastors today.

For those who don’t speak the things inspired by the Lord, Paul has a word to say to them. He, (God) will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God (1 Corinthians 4:5).

In all this, we must pray and trust Jesus to lead us to the right congregation. We must go to a church group where the mysteries and secrets of The Lord are made clear, remembering that Jesus said during His sermon on the mount, Do not judge or you too will be judged (Matthew 7:1)!

The way to find understanding of the mysteries of God and His word is to ask Him for clarity, and if necessary to have you meet a teacher who can help you understand.


Pray today about who you should be listening to, and ask God to show you a ministry which can help answer your queries and questions.

Read 1 Corinthians 4 and note that Paul warns all of us to not go beyond what is written (v7).

Pray that you will understand the Bible when you read it, and not add anything to it, pray the same for your pastors or priests.
