Laying Aside My Rights for the Good of Others

June 30, 2018
By Pastor Jathan

Sermon – Laying Aside My Rights for the Good of Others - 1 Corinthians 9:1-23

Preparing my heart for the sermon:

  • What right is Paul explaining that he has?
  • Why did Paul not exercise this right?
  • Why does Paul discuss this here?  How does this relate to the context in the letter?

Other passages to consider – Matt 20:20-28; Luke 10:1-12; John 13:1-15; Eph 4:1-3; Phil 2:1-11; 2 Cor 4:1-15; 1 Tim 5:17-20; 1 Pet 5:5-7.

Digging Deeper:

  • Why do we often feel like we must demand our rights?  What will help us be willing to let go of them?
  • How did Jesus model laying aside rights for the good of others?
  • What does it look like to become all things to all people (v22) for the sake of the gospel?
  • What “rights” could I currently set aside to help bring the gospel to others?
