Sermon by: Pastor Matt Spradlin
1 Corinthians 9:1-27
In Chapter 8 Paul say we are free in Christ, but make sure your freedom is guided by love. In other words, put the greater priority of people over the lesser priority of stuff. Then in chapter 9 he illustrates his point by saying as their pastor he had the right to receive a salary, but he gave up that right for the greater goal of seeing people saved. Chapter 9 is not an interruption, it is an illustration of liberty guided by love, of sacrificing our freedom for the greater priority of spreading the gospel.
