I Corinthians 9:19-22
Become All Things to All People by all Means in order to save Some

Become All Things by All Means to Save Some

1 Corinthians 9:19-22 CEV, “I am not anyone's slave. But I have become a slave to everyone, so I can win as many people as possible. When I am with the Jews, I live like a Jew to win Jews. They are ruled by the Law of Moses, and I am not. But I live by the Law to win them. And when I am with people who are not ruled by the Law, I forget about the Law to win them. Of course, I never really forget about the law of God. In fact, I am ruled by the law of Christ. When I am with people whose faith is weak, I live as they do to win them. I do everything I can to win everyone I possibly can.”
Paul considers both Jews and Gentiles in need of salvation.


Accommodation vs. Compromise
  • No moral compromise
  • No theology compromise
  • Accommodation is in non-essential matters
When to be Flexible and when to hold Firm
  1. Determine the difference between Legalists and weaker Christians
  2. Be Careful in deciding what the True Obstacle is
  3. Make a clear division between a Pharisee and weaker Christian
1 Corinthians 9:23, “Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.”
