🏃It’s All About The Good News🏆🥇

1 Corinthians 9:15-24 The Passion Translation

15 And keep in mind that I’m not writing all this because I’m hinting that you should support me.

Paul Renounces His Rights for the Sake of the Gospel

Actually, I’d rather die than to have anyone rob me of this joyous reason for boasting![a]16 For you see, even though I proclaim the good news, I can’t take the credit for my labors, for I am compelled to fulfill my duty by completing this work. It would be agony to me if I did not constantly preach the gospel! 17 If it were my own idea to preach as a way to make a living, I would expect to be paid. Since it’s not my idea but God’s, who commissioned me, I am entrusted with the stewardship of the gospel whether or not I’m paid18 So then, where is my reward? It is found in continually depositing the good news into people’s hearts, without obligation, free of charge, and not insisting on my rights to be financially supported.

Paul, a Servant to All

19 Now, even though I am free from obligations to others,[b] I joyfully make myself a servant to all in order to win as many converts as possible. 20 I became Jewish to the Jewish people in order to win them to the Messiah. I became like one under the law to gain the people who were stuck under the law, even though I myself am not under the law. 21 And to those who are without the Jewish laws, I became like them, as one without the Jewish laws, in order to win them, although I’m not outside the law of God but under the law of Christ. 22 I became “weak” to the weak to win the weak. I have adapted to the culture of every place I’ve gone[c] so that I could more easily win people to Christ. 23 I’ve done all this so that I would become God’s partner for the sake of the gospel.[d]

Paul’s Disciplined Lifestyle

24 Isn’t it obvious that all runners on the racetrack[e] keep on running to win, but only one receives the victor’s prize? Yet each one of you must run the race to be victorious. Read full chapter

Apostolic Blessing and Conclusion

20 Now may the God who brought us peace by raising from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ so that he would be the Great Shepherd of his flock; and by the power of the blood of the eternal covenant 21 may he work perfection into every part of you giving you all that you need to fulfill your destiny. And may he express through you all that is excellent and pleasing[a] to him through your life-union with Jesus the Anointed One who is to receive all glory forever! Amen!Read full chapter
