Day 67, March 8, 1 Corinthians 9

1 Corinthians 9:24-27 ESV
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

  1. 1 Corinthians 9
    Paul’s Right to Be Paid for His Work as an Apostle
    3-5 This is how I defend myself to those who cross-examine me. Don’t we have the right to eat and drink? Don’t we have the right to take our wives along with us like the other apostles, the Lord’s brothers, and Cephas do?

    11 If we have planted the spiritual seed that has been of benefit to you, is it too much if we receive part of the harvest from your earthly goods?

    14 In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who spread the Good News should earn their living from the Good News.

    1 Corinthians 1
    9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
