1 Corinthians 4 - Outline

v1-5
since Paul is like the Lord's accountant, then he is going to get a greater judgement from the Lord Himself, than any judgment that we might give him
v6-7
we shouldn't think we're better than other people, because we only have what has been given to us
v8
believers who are complacent in their prosperity, should consider the apostles
v9-13
the apostles aren't supposed to be like our rock-stars; they're supposed to be like our parents
v14-16
the apostles have sacrificed all of the good things in their lives, including their reputations, for our benefit; so, instead of arguing about which one of them is cooler, we should actually listen to them
v17
remember Paul's ways in Christ, that he teaches
v18-21
nobody wants there to be a need for chastisement, so we need to change our emphasis from cool-sounding words, into actions of the true power of holiness
