Sunday, August 15, 2021. 1 Corinthians 9:1-27 | “Living By The Gospel.” We are a people who love our rights! But is there ever a time when we should give them up? The apostle builds a strong defense for his rights as an apostle and preacher of the gospel of Christ. Rights that God even provides for him! Yet what he spends the first half of this chapter building up, he spends the second half laying down freely, for the sake of that same gospel. The apostle talks about his rights, his reward, and his race.
