1 Corinthians 9:19-23 NKJV For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; 20 and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without law; 22 to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23 Now this I do for the gospel's sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.

win (kerdaino) = to gain

save (sode-zo) = to save, deliver

Every believer God saves, He also sends!
Sometimes a person's influence is narrow in scope and marginally important.
Sometimes a person's influence is all-encompassing and mega important!

Focusing on people's temporary needs, while ignoring their long term need is the epitome of shortsightedness!

Paul was focused on doing anything and everything he could to introduce people to Jesus Christ.

Are we?

Questions To Consider:
  • What is more important than introducing people to Jesus?
  • What if the lens through which we saw everyone else was Jesus?
  • How can we say we love people if we don't even know where they'll spend eternity?

In Conclusion:
Every believer God saves, He also sends!
