All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
This rhetorical question rings out in the world today: "whom should we praise?" The surety is that ultimately one day we will praise the God of the universe whether we chose to now or not. Where we are to praise Him is evidenced in this study of First Corinthians chapter four in these three arenas: the world of unbelievers, the world of the church, and the world of things. In each of these areas, we are encouraged to seek God in dealing with the issues of each day, bringing to Him our cares and concerns and in result, our praise.
