We are Accountable Stewards of The Gospel (1 Corinthians 4:1-5)

I. The mysteries of the gospel have been passed to us, making us stewards (1)
II. As stewards, we are to share the mysteries of the gospel (2)
III. We are accountable to God for our stewardship of the mysteries of the gospel (3-5)

1 Corinthians 4:1-5
4:1 This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. 4 For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me. 5 Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God. (ESV)
