1 Corinthians 10:31-33
Principles of Courageous Christianity
(Sermon Series – I Need My Church)
Sunday, October 3, 2021
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved. Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. (1 Corinthians 10:31–11:1).
Main Point: We should strive to glorify God in everything do. Question: Ask yourself the question, “How much of my life do I live with the goal of giving glory to God?”
I. Do all for God’s glory. “Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
II. Don’t cause people to stumble. “Give no offense to Jews or to Gentiles or to the church of God.”
III. Imitate Paul as he imitated Christ. “Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.”
IV. Become a Courageous Christian. How?
a. Principle #1: Exalt the Savior – “Do all to the glory of God”
b. Principle #2: Edify the Saints – “I try to please everyone in everything”
c. Principle #3: Evangelize the un-Saved – “Not seeking my own advantage… that they may be saved”
Challenge: Stop pretending; instead, why don’t you get serious about your faith and become a courageous Christian
