God First

Some modern day leaders are bombastically full of themselves. This is not the case with Paul. One example is where he is writing to the Corinthian church.

In the first chapter of his first letter he is repeatedly pointing to God and Christ. The first verse states who he, Paul, is, but qualifies it by stating that he is ‘called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God.’ Every phrase points the reader to his God and there can be no higher recommendation. He wishes them ‘grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.’ He continues in the same vein, God is the ultimate. The emphasis is where it belongs.
