Judgement By God Is Important

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.
1 Corinthians 4:3 – KJV

Let us be judged as servants of Christ, and as those who are responsible for the secret things of God.
And it is right for such servants to be true in Christ.
But it is a very small thing to me that I am judged by you or by man’s judging; I am not even a judge of myself.
For I am not conscious of any wrong in myself; but this does not make me clear, for it is the Lord who is my judge.
For this reason let there be no judging before the time, till the Lord comes, who will make clear the secret things of the dark, and the designs of the heart; and then will every man have his praise from God.
The kingdom of God isn’t just talk, but also power.
