Proper Care and Feeding of Spiritual Leaders

February 12, 2020 Speaker: Jim Harris Series: 1 Corinthians

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 9:1–18

We saw back in chapter 6 that Paul used rhetorical and sarcastic questions to show the emotional fervor with which he approached the matter of Christians going to court. There are 17 rhetorical questions in 9:1-14. Paul came on very strongly about this!
You're going to see Paul's inconsistency. He wisely knew when to use his liberty to do things to advance the gospel, and he wisely knew when to limit his liberty by love. He zealously defends the rights of servants of God to be supported, and he explains why he limited his liberty by choosing not to be supported most of the time.
