Sermon for Sept. 13, 2020

“1 Corinthians: All Things to All People”

Proverbs 11:30, 1 Corinthians 9:19-23

 

Proverbs 11:30

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
and whoever captures souls is wise.

1 Corinthians 9:19-23

For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.
