1 Corinthians 4 - Key

v16

Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
If somebody questions the authority of the writtings of Paul, in the Bible, here is a verse that begs us to follow him. Paul's writtings in the Bible are Scripture (2 Peter 3:15,16), and Scripture was spoken as the Holy Spirit moved holy men of God (2 Peter 1:20,21).

Application

v3
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
If a servant of the Lord comes to me with a message from the Lord, instead of trying to judge the messenger before I listen to the message, I'll make sure to judge myself. For the time being, at least, I can leave the judgment of those other perceived problems in the Lord's servant's life, to the Lord.
