I Corinthians 4:1-2 “Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers
of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is
required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” (KJV)
Would you be an under-rower for Jesus Christ your Lord?
They sat on the bottom row chained to a hard board.
With two more rows of rowers that sat above their head.
They stayed in that position until they were found dead.
That’s the word that Paul used in first Corinthians four.
To say he was a “minister” of Christ and nothing more.
This person was not seen nor given any praise.
He was just a galley slave to the end of his short days.
Often Paul would call himself, “a servant of the Lord.”
Held secure but not with chains but by God’s loving chord.
The under-rower did not know the way the ship would go.
All the galley slave needs to know is how to row and row.
The rower had a thankless job for which none would volunteer.
But Paul chose to serve the Lord, who he wrote would soon appear.
So, would you be an under-rower for Jesus Christ your King?
Would you take this job for life and praise to Jesus bring?
