The Gospel Engine

PowerPoint Presentation:

With a population of 400,000 and being a prominent center of commerce in the Mediterranean world, it was a place for all sorts of vice . An example of its immorality was found in the temple of Venus (Aphrodite), which hosted 1000 priestesses dedicated to prostitution in the name of religion. The city's close proximity to the city of Athens probably added the problem of intellectualism . As noticed in the epistle, such an environment had its effect upon the church in Corinth. It is amazing that a church existed at all in such a city.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Context: Food offered to idols, 8,9,10. The Big Idea: The Gospel with no barriers for brothers & the lost.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Am I not an Apostle? [1Cr 9:1 ESV] Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are not you my workmanship in the Lord? [1Cr 9:2 ESV] If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you, for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. [1Cr 9:3 ESV] This is my defense to those who would examine me.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Don’t I have rights also? [1Cr 9:4 ESV] Do we not have the right to eat and drink? [1Cr 9:5 ESV] Do we not have the right to take along a believing wife, as do the other apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas ? [1Cr 9:6 ESV] Or is it only Barnabas and I who have no right to refrain from working for a living? [1Cr 9:7 ESV] Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard without eating any of its fruit? Or who tends a flock without getting some of the milk?

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Bible commands you compensate your workers. [1Cr 9:8 ESV] Do I say these things on human authority? Does not the Law say the same? [1Cr 9:9 ESV] For it is written in the Law of Moses, "You shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain." Is it for oxen that God is concerned? [1Cr 9:10 ESV] Does he not certainly speak for our sake? It was written for our sake, because the plowman should plow in hope and the thresher thresh in hope of sharing in the crop.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Shouldn’t an Apostle be remunerated? [1Cr 9:11 ESV] If we have sown spiritual things among you, is it too much if we reap material things from you? [1Cr 9:12 ESV] If others share this rightful claim on you, do not we even more? Nevertheless, we have not made use of this right, but we endure anything rather than put an obstacle in the way of the gospel of Christ.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Temple Economy [1Cr 9:13 ESV] Do you not know that those who are employed in the temple service get their food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar share in the sacrificial offerings? [1Cr 9:14 ESV] In the same way, the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I Must Share The Gospel! [1Cr 9:15 ESV] But I have made no use of any of these rights, nor am I writing these things to secure any such provision. For I would rather die than have anyone deprive me of my ground for boasting. [1Cr 9:16 ESV] For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! [1Cr 9:17 ESV] For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward, but if not of my own will, I am still entrusted with a stewardship.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Paul’s Reward; Sharing the Gospel Free of Charge [1Cr 9:18 ESV] What then is my reward? That in my preaching I may present the gospel free of charge, so as not to make full use of my right in the gospel.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why: That he might win some . [1Cr 9:19 ESV] For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them.

PowerPoint Presentation:

His Strategy [1Cr 9:20 ESV] 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. [1Cr 9:21 ESV] 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. [1Cr 9:22 ESV] 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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

“I do it all for the sake of the Gospel” [ 1Cr 9:23 ESV] I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why the Gospel? Means Good News. What is the good news? The ABC, The Romans Road, The Color Book/Bracelet. The reason Jesus Christ went to the cross. If that does not move you, you don’t belong to God.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The story about Jesus Christ, the Cross, The resurrection, the atonement from God, The only way for a human to make it to Heaven. The only way for a human to be forgiven for being evil. The only way for God declare a human “not guilty”. The only way for satisfy the God’s 10 commandments. The only way to have a relationship with God

PowerPoint Presentation:

Yet, when was the last time you told anybody about the work of Jesus Christ? Think about why you are silent.

PowerPoint Presentation:

B e a Disciples : To respond to God’s love through the Gospel Worship : To respond to God’s Love through the Gospel Fellowship : To respond to God’s Love through the Gospel Minister : To respond to God’s Love through the Gospel Evangelize : To respond to God’s Love through the Gospel

PowerPoint Presentation:

For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed — a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: " The righteous will live by faith .“ [ Rom 1:17 NIV]

PowerPoint Presentation:

[ 1Cr 9:24 ESV] Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. [1Cr 9:25 ESV] Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. [1Cr 9:26 ESV] So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air.
