- Scripture: 1 Corinthians 9:13-27
Greetings Church Family
Paul has been speaking of forgoing our rights for the sake of the weak, that we might win as many as possible and receive a great crown in heaven. His eye is on the prize. He's willing to modify all sorts of behaviors to win lost souls. Paul gives the example of one fully sacrificed to God, forsaking his own freedoms. He doesn’t have to push his view on Jews who didn’t really need to be circumcised, celebrate the festivals & live the Jewish lifestyle. He doesn’t need to change the mind of a brother with a weak conscience. He doesn’t need to take his rightful pay either because he hopes his generosity will win more for Christ.
What will you forgo to reach more for Christ today?
