1 Corinthians 3:21-23 (KJV) All For One

1 Corinthians 3:21-23 (KJV)
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.
The church at Corinth, as an example of all churches, had a real problem with glorying in men. Paul, Cephas and Apollos were each hailed by different factions in the church as greater than the others.
I can imagine:
  • One was a great orator
  • One was a great soul winner
  • One was a great organizer 
People migrated to the quality each found most admirable.
Paul’s lesson was that God had given each one and each one was given for the same purpose.
For our own purposes, no one person is greater than any other because each is merely doing what God led him or her to do. Each one is for the advancement of the work of God in the church.
Only God deserves glory.
