1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1- “Our Responsibility with Christian Liberties”

My sermon notes for Sunday morning, July 3rd.  Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon. They are provided as an outline each week for our Tabernacle Church family. The church provides a live stream of the service each Sunday at 10:30 on Facebook. We also provide the services through YouTube by Sunday afternoon.  You can find Sermon Notes, Family Devotional Guides, Prayer List, and other resources at our Church Website.

1 Corinthians 10:23–11:1

INTRO

What can I do?

All things are lawful for me…v. 22a

What should I do?

But not all things are helpful… not all things build up. v. 23

Remember, the thing we are “doing” is seen by others.  This is not just a personal decision between me and the Lord.  It is a decision that has public consequences.

You can, but should you?

Think about the impact it will have on you and on others.

v. 24 – Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor.

Two other questions that help with the SHOULD

Why am I doing it?

The passion behind our decisions … the reason we do what we do

For Me or Others

What if we changed our WHY?????

How will it impact others?

Build up others – v. 23

That they might be saved – v. 33

vv. 32-33 – 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.  11-:1   Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.

Not seeking my own advantage

Imitate me as I imitate Christ
