Beloved, what are you willing to do to bring someone to Christ? The Apostle Paul was faced with this dilemma when he returned to Jerusalem. Should he attempt to keep the peace and thus humble himself or should he allow his pride to shield others from the Gospel of Peace?
Despite being a man full of worldly credentials Paul was also a humble man. Paul wrote this to the Corinthians as found in 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, “For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. 20To 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. 21To 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. 22To 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. 23I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.”
Beloved, may we also lay aside our pride as we reach forward with the glorious Gospel of Grace. Our world desperately needs Jesus. May He use us for His glory to bring many to Himself! May we be willing to “become all things to all men so that by all possible means I (Christ) might save some!”
