Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 9:1-18 | Preacher: Donnie Case | Series: FREEDOM | In 1 Corinthians 9:1-18 we see the Apostle Paul continuing his argument from chapter 8 as he exhorts the Corinthians to surrender their personal rights and freedoms for the sake of the advancement of the Gospel. The main argument that Paul uses to defend this way of life here in chapter 9 is the fact that he is a servant of the church but is not compensated financially by the congregation.
