Become All Things

1 Corinthians 9:19-23 Amplified Bible (AMP)

19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to everyone, so that I may win more [for Christ]. 20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, so that I might win Jews [for Christ]; to men under the Law, [I became] as one [a]under the Law, though not being under the Law myself, so that I might win those who are under the Law. 21 To those who are without (outside) the Law, [I became] as one without the Law, though [I am] not without the law of God, but under the law of Christ, so that I might win those who are without law. 22 To the [b]weak I became [as the] weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means [in any and every way] save some [by leading them to faith in Jesus Christ]. 23 And I do all this for the sake of the gospel, so that I may share in its blessings along with you.

Paul’s teaching how to evangelize, the most quoted part of this scripture is, I have become all things to all men. If you can remember just this, you have remembered well.

Paul starts off by saying, I have made myself a slave, a servant to all people. Notice he didn’t say “When I went I expected to be served.” He did the serving.

One time while attending school I told the Lord I was getting tired of always being the one to do the cleaning after class. Seems like every church I go to, I ended up being the one to do the cleaning afterward. So that night I finished class and started to clean the bathrooms.

While in there a lady came in and she was so happy to see me cleaning. She said, “I know you’re a rich man! And it just does my heart so good to see a rich man humble himself for the Lord!” I was so tired I just said “Thank you” thinking if I have to be a rich man to help her, I’ll just let her think that. Maybe not the best example but close enough. I have made myself a slave to everyone,

Another time a relative’s close friend died, they were a different crowd, and they all met at a bar in town. All of the deceased’s friends were gathered together. I went over there because I knew my relatives would be hurting deeply. When I walked in everyone knew who I was, the ‘Holy Roller,’ but they appreciated my presence. I spoke with people while they drank, it didn’t bother me, but I could tell the fact that a Christian had come to pay respects made them feel better. I didn’t lead anyone to the Lord that night, but a seed was planted that Christians do care. To those who are without (outside) the Law, [I became] as one without the Law,

I was at a Full Gospel Business Man’s dinner the evangelist made an altar call for the unsaved to come forward. My friend Ray was standing there and the man said: “I see you standing, come on up!” Ray had accepted the Lord two months before me, I knew he was saved. Ray just bowed his head and walked up reverently. Then I noticed other men get up out of their chairs and go forward to accept the Lord, several.

I asked Ray about that afterward and he said, “You know that has happened to me a few times before, I guess the Lord just uses me to prime the pump for others?” Maybe because Ray worked on pumps for a living? But Ray became as though he were unsaved to get others to be saved. 23 And I do all this for the sake of the gospel, so that I may share in its blessings along with you.

Ray gets to share in the Blessings of others. And you can too.

He is, “El Moshaah”
