DAILY BIBLE READING
Save Some By All Means
1 Cor. 9:19-23
Apostle Paul lived an exemplary life in the area of evangelism. He went as far as denying himself of so many comforts which he was not under obligation to negotiate, in order to save and win some people for Christ. Though he was free, he voluntarily became a slave for the good of others whom he wanted to win. He made it his custom to seek out the synagogue in each town he entered in order to win the Jews. Yet he never compromised the essence of the gospel. Brethren, what have we done, what have we sacrificed in order to save sinners by all means. If we must see positive result and see the fruits of our labour in the Lord and in the church, we must go an extra mile in our efforts to see souls saved.
Point of Emphasis: Paul became all things to all men to save some by all means, and so must we.
Prayer Point: Help me to do all within my abilities to bring sinners to Christ O Lord.
