1 Corinthians Chapter 9 Discussion Page 3

  • Timothy Wayne George on 1 Corinthians 9
    Paul said if I preach the gospel of my free will I shall receive a reward. It is interesting that the world pays its ball players great salaries to intertain them, but the minister of the gospel preaches the word of God to save them yet they don't want to pay him. Praise God there will be a pay day one day in glory. Nevertheless, we are to keep our body under subjection, less after we have preached to others, we should become cast aways. Paul became all things to all men that he could win some to Chrsit Jesus the Lord. So just continue to be faithful in season, and out of season knowing that of the Lord we shall receive the reward of the inheritance that will never fade away a crown that shall be incoruptible. So let us run the race looking unto Jesus the alpha, and the omega who for the joy set before him endured the cross despising the shame. Now He is seated at the right hand of the Father from which He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
  • George on 1 Corinthians 9
    22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all [men], that I might by all means save some.

    This is an interesting verse - to be made all things to all men for the sake of the Gospel. We must remain steadfast and unwavering in faith. Nonetheless, this verse seems to suggest that the method of delivering the Word may differ depending on the group of people weak, under the law, without law, etc. That is, the Word shall remain the same to all but the delivery may differ.
  • Michael Lydon on 1 Corinthians 9
    18 What is my reward then? verily that when I preach the Gospel, I may make the Gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the Gospel.

    "WITHOUT CHARGE" = no iudgments! Grace over judgmental wrath. Patient Kindness over prideful self emulating assumptions and pity. Joy over remorse.

    Those offering Iudgment onto Paul for supposedly charging is part of the lesson.
  • Anthony marshall on 1 Corinthians 9
    18 What is my reward then? [Verily] that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.

    19 For though I be free from all [men], yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

    It is very interesting in that these two verses that Paul mentions the no charge, yet pastors have no remorse about themselves or to God when they get a salary that not even the working man could make. Lord have pity on these people.
