A Labor of Love!

Although I am free in regard to all, I have made myself a slave to
all so as to win over as many as possible.

1 Corinthians 9:19

In first Corinthians chapter 9, the Apostle Paul speaks of his labor of love as an obligation divinely imposed upon him to spread the gospel message. Paul’s conviction that this is not an option for him echoes words from Jeremiah (20:8-9)– “His word is in my heart like a fire, I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.” Paul’s commission is free of charge to ensure he does not misuse his authority in the gospel.  

“I offer this gospel free of charge as not to make full use of my right in the gospel. Although I am free in regard to all, I have made myself a slave to all so as to win over as many as possible. To the weak I became weak, to win over the weak, I have become all things to all, to save at least some. All this I do for the sake of the gospel, so that I too may have a share in it.” 

Paul recognizes that all will not partake in the salvation message, yet as he preaches the Gospel he strengthens and confirms his own path to salvation. 

All this I do for the sake of the gospel!
