Study Passage: 1 Corinthians 9:19-22
For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. 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. 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. 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.
- Why do you think Paul was so tenacious and unrelenting in his efforts to bring people to Christ?
- Thinking of one specific guy in your neighbourhood, what “common ground” (v.22) can you find for reaching out to him?
- What’s a step you can take to reach out to a neighbour this coming week?
Spend Time in Prayer: Think of three to five guys in your neighbourhood or workplace who don’t know Christ; pray specifically for each one; ask God to open your eyes to opportunities to reach out to them.
