All Things to All People

Series: First Things First:Corinthians
Date: October 25, 2009 By: Steve DeWitt Campus: Crown Point



Pastor Steve DeWitt continues his series in First Corinthians 9:19-23 by discussing Paul's statement of "becoming all things to all people so that he might save some." Looking at what we expect of those who serve around the world as missionaries, Pastor Steve raises the question of what we should expect of ourselves as we strive to impact the culture around us for Christ.


19 For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. 20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. 21 To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. 23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings. 1 Corinthians 9:19 — 1 Corinthians 9:23 ESV
