Laying Aside our Rights – 1 Corinthians Ch9v1to12

Laying Aside our Rights – 1 Corinthians Ch9v1to12

In this evening’s passage, Rorie Watson discovers how Paul deals with his rights.  First of all, he proves that he is a genuine Apostle.  From this he establishes his rights to material support from the Corinthians.  Why then, has he consistently laid aside his rights in his dealings with them?  Because he doesn’t want anything to hinder his reaching people for Christ.  This is a principal worth copying.  The spread of the Gospel and the benefit of others is a good reason for setting aside our rights.
