🍃Running to Obtain the Prize🍃

Our redemption is “at stake” in our willingness to look out for other believers. True Christians cannot lose their salvation, but true Christians know that the life of faith is a race and that those who truly know Him look to the good of other believers and not just themselves (Phil. 2:4).

If we do not seek the good of other believers, we show that our profession of faith may be false and that we may not find the prize of eternal life.

🍁All Things to All People🍁

It is good, even essential, to have a zeal to see lost people come to saving faith in Jesus. However, we will commit many errors if we do not also have a zeal for the law of Christ, the eternal moral law of God.

We should regularly be seeking to understand the law of Christ, revealed throughout Scripture, so that we do not lead ourselves or others astray.

🍁Waters flooded the earth.🍁

"Some have suggested that the deluge was a massive landslide and the water came afterwards. This passage does not supoort such concept.

It was the waters that flooded the world and drowned all living creatures on earth."

🍁Las aguas inundaron la tierra.🍁

"Algunos han sugerido que el diluvio fue un arrasamiento de la tierra y que las aguas vinieron despues de esto. Este versículo no apoya tal concepto.

Las aguas mismas inundaron el mundo y ahogaron todas las criaturas de la tierra, que fueron encontradas a su paso".

🍁Freedom for Evangelism🍁

It can be easy to identify our own cultural preferences as gospel essentials. Yet, if we make our cultural preferences gospel essentials, we can prevent people from hearing the truth of the gospel, which transcends all cultures. Some cultural traditions are indeed sinful, and these cannot be accepted.

But we must be careful not to reject as sinful what is merely indifferent. Otherwise, we make it more difficult for other cultures to hear the gospel.

✨Paul’s Reward✨

As one commentator notes, Paul’s pay or reward is “no pay.” By voluntarily forgoing financial compensation, Paul saw himself as receiving ultimately a greater reward. This is by no means required for all ministers or all Christians.

Nevertheless, let us not overlook the fact that the Lord will bless those who make sacrifices for Him.
