Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. – 1 Corinthians 9:19
Paul’s imagery is striking. Though he can claim citizenship, Paul took a lower position in order to win more to Jesus Christ. How do we view ourselves? Do we demand rights? In a day of Christian consumerism where we establish ourselves as connoisseurs of Sunday services, sermons, and worship music, are we willing to give up the right of our preference in order to serve others?
