For the Sake of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 9:1–27)

1 Corinthians Exposition

The local church is the custodian of the gospel, which of course is a matter of life and death—eternal life or eternal death. Properly stewarding the gospel includes dying to one’s rights in order to remove unnecessary obstacles to believing the gospel. In 1 Corinthians 9 Paul provides a personal example of what dying to self looks like. His example is a powerful argument for the urgency of adorning the gospel, practically demonstrating the Christian’s responsibility to live for the sake of the gospel. We will study the chapter under four broad headings: 1. The Christian’s Rights (vv. 1–14) 2. The Christian’s Restraint (vv. 15–18) 3. The Christian’s Rationale (vv. 19–23) 4. The Christian’s Race (vv. 24–27)

Scripture References: 1 Corinthians 9:1-27

God’s word is entirely efficacious; what he says he will do, what he speaks he will accomplish. His word is never uttered into the void and never fails to produce what he intends.
