1 Corinthians 9:1 King James Version (KJV)

9 Am I am not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord?

1 Corinthians 9:1 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

9 Am I not a free man? Am I not an emissary of the Messiah? Haven’t I seen Yeshua our Lord? And aren’t you yourselves the result of my work for the Lord?

People may question both us and how the Lord has used us.

1 Corinthians 9:13 King James Version (KJV)

13 Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?

 

1 Corinthians 9:13 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

 

13 Don’t you know that those who work in the Temple get their food from the Temple, and those who serve at the altar get a share of the sacrifices offered there?

We are to only live off of what God gives us.

1 Corinthians 9:14

KJV 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.

BSB 14 In the same way, the Lord has prescribed that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.

 

These are my thoughts.

We aren’t to just share thru words but share by living out the gospel, letting Him change our lives.

1 Corinthians 9:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.

1 Corinthians 9:15 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

15 But I have made no use of any of these rights, nor am I writing this so that they may be applied in my case. Indeed, I would rather die than that—no one will deprive me of my ground for boasting!

We need to feel this strong about us boasting in the Lord as well.

1 Corinthians 9:17 King James Version (KJV)

17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.

 

1 Corinthians 9:17 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

 

17 For if I do this willingly, I have a reward; but if I do it unwillingly, I still do it, simply because I’ve been entrusted with a job.

We should not be committed to our own will but be committed to His heavenly will for us.

1 Corinthians 9:20 King James Version (KJV)

20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

 

1 Corinthians 9:20 The Passion Translation (TPT)

 

20 I became Jewish to the Jewish people in order to win them to the Messiah. I became like one under the law to gain the people who were stuck under the law, even though I myself am not under the law.

These are my thoughts.

Paul was Jewish so he was being a fake or pretending to be someone he was not but choosing to live in the way he hadn’t to share the gospel sometimes we have to change how we do things to be a witness for the Lord this should never though hurt our walk with Him.
