How are we supposed to view preachers? We are to see them as they are, servants of God. Paul teaches the Corinthians they were to view him and Apollos as God’s servants, who were hired to work in God’s field, and the field was the church in Corinth. God owns the workers, the field, and He alone can give the growth. There is no spiritual growth outside of God’s action.
That principle is still true for you and I today. The church, the preachers, and all spiritual growth, belongs to God.
