1 Corinthians 9:18-27 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
18 What then is my 1reward? That, when I preach the gospel, I may offer the gospel 2without charge, so as 3not to make full use of my right in the gospel. 19 For though I am 4free from all men, I have made myself 5a slave to all, so that I may 6win more. 20 7To the Jews I became as a Jew, so that I might win Jews; to those who are under athe Law, as under bthe Law though 8not being myself under cthe Law, so that I might win those who are under dthe Law; 21 to those who are 9without law, 10as without law, though not being without the law of God but 11under the law of Christ, so that I might win those who are without law. 22 To the 12weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become 13all things to all men, 14so that I may by all means save some. 23 I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it. 24 15Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives 16the prize? 17Run in such a way that you may win. 25 Everyone who 18competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable 19wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 Therefore I 20run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not 21beating the air; 27 but I ediscipline 22my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.
