The Cost of the Gospel

Speaker: David Stanford
Passage: 1 Corinthians 9:1-18

Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not the result of my work in the Lord? 2 Even though I may not be an apostle to others, surely I am to you! For you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. 3 This is my defense to those who sit in judgment on me. 4 Don’t we have the right to food and drink? 5 Don’t we have the right to take a believing wife along with us, as do the other apostles and the Lord’s brothers and Cephas? 6 Or is it only I and Barnabas who lack the right to not work for a living?


Key Points

There is a cost to the gospel…

  • A cost to sharing
  • A cost to God
  • Paul’s passion and priority are inspirational, that nothing may hinder the gospel
