1 Corinthians 1-6 (The Daily Walk Bible).
Humility is a big part of a Christian’s walk. God chose us – we aren’t to boast about how special we are. We are miserable sinners, and it’s only because of Jesus Christ that we can be saved! Paul extends that to Christian workers. All have their part to play, and one shouldn’t be exalted above another.
In fact, we couldn’t understand anything without the Spirit. When we submit to the Spirit and resist sinful desires, we mature. And a part of maturity is resisting, rebuking, and refraining from sexual immorality.
One final thought: power, prestige, and position are no guarantee of God’s work in your life. In fact, the opposite may be true! “Even now we go hungry and thirsty, and we don’t have enough clothes to keep warm. We are often beaten and have no home. We work wearily with our own hands to earn our living. We bless those who curse us. We are patient with those who abuse us. We appeal gently when evil things are said about us. Yet we are treated like the world’s garbage, like everybody’s trash—right up to the present moment” (1 Cor 4:11-13).
