1 Corinthians 9:16-23New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel! 17 For if I do this willingly, I have a reward; but if against my will, I have been entrusted with a stewardship. 18 What is my reward then? That when I preach the gospel, I may present the gospel [a]of Christ without charge, that I may not abuse my authority in the gospel.
Serving All Men
19 For though I am free from all men,I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; 20 and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the [b]law, that I might win those who are under the law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law (not being without [c]law toward God, but under [d]law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without law; 22 to the weak I became [e]as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men,that I might by all means save some. 23 Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.
