Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:31


10:31 Therefore - To close the present point with a general rule, applicable not only in this, but in all cases, Whatsoever ye do - In all things whatsoever, whether of a religious or civil nature, in all the common, as well as sacred, actions of life, keep the glory of God in view, and steadily pursue in all this one end of your being, the planting or advancing the vital knowledge and love of God, first in your own soul, then in all mankind.

    "And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;" This is such an interesting part: to think about the man Moses, and how great he was in God's sight; the meekest of all men on the earth; and one to whom God spoke face to face, as a man speaks with his friend. Thinking about the great high calling of being a people closer to God than any others in the world; to bring Jesus to all!

    1 Corinthians 10:23 "All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not." Bruce, For you to say my question was a "little bit ambiguous" did not edify. After all, I said "In light of" if something is brought into the "light" with hope that it will edify (offering knowledge) someone; I would think it not "ambiguous."

    "But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed." Temptations will cease when we're ten minutes dead. Until then we have all grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His Spirit in our hearts, to stand firm and not sin. All the promises are to the Overcomers and that's what we intend to be, by God's mercy and power, that works mightily in us in Jesus' Name! Amen Praise JAH!
