Overcoming Temptation
1 Corinthians 10
 

1Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
 2And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
 3And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
 4And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
 5But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
 6Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
 7Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
 8Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
 9Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
 10Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
 11Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
 12Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
 13There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
 14Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
 15I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
 16The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
 17For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
 18Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
 19What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
 20But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
 21Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
 22Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
 23All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
 24Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.
 25Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake:
 26For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.
 27If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
 28But if any man say unto you, this is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:
 29Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience?
 30For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks?
 31Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
 32Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
 33Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

Today's Scripture Meaning:
 
The great privileges, and yet terrible overthrow of the Israelites in the wilderness. (1-5) Cautions against all idolatrous, and other sinful practices. (6-14) The partaking in idolatry cannot exist with having communion with Christ. (15-22) All we do to be to the glory of God, and without offence to the consciences of others. (23-33)
Verses 1-5: To dissuade the Corinthians from communion with idolaters, and security in any sinful course, the apostle sets before them the example of the Jewish nation of old. They were, by a miracle, led through the Red Sea, where the pursuing Egyptians were drowned. It was to them a typical baptism. The manna on which they fed was a type of Christ crucified, the Bread which came down from heaven, which whoso eateth shall live for ever. Christ is the Rock on which the Christian church is built; and of the streams that issue therefrom, all believers drink, and are refreshed. It typified the sacred influences of the Holy Spirit, as given to believers through Christ. But let none presume upon their great privileges, or profession of the truth; these will not secure heavenly happiness.
Verses 6-14: Carnal desires gain strength by indulgence, therefore should be checked in their first rise. Let us fear the sins of Israel, if we would shun their plagues. And it is but just to fear, that such as tempt Christ, will be left by him in the power of the old serpent. Murmuring against God's disposals and commands, greatly provokes him. Nothing in Scripture is written in vain; and it is our wisdom and duty to learn from it. Others have fallen, and so may we. The Christian's security against sin is distrust of himself. God has not promised to keep us from falling, if we do not look to ourselves. To this word of caution, a word of comfort is added. Others have the like burdens, and the like temptations: what they bear up under, and break through, we may also. God is wise as well as faithful, and will make our burdens according to our strength. He knows what we can bear. He will make a way to escape; he will deliver either from the trial itself, or at least the mischief of it. We have full encouragement to flee from sin, and to be faithful to God. We cannot fall by temptation, if we cleave fast to him. Whether the world smiles or frowns, it is an enemy; but believers shall be strengthened to overcome it, with all its terrors and enticements. The fear of the Lord, put into their hearts, will be the great means of safety.
Verses 15-22: Did not the joining in the Lord's supper show a profession of faith in Christ crucified, and of adoring gratitude to him for his salvation ? Christians, by this ordinance, and the faith therein professed, were united as the grains of wheat in one loaf of bread, or as the members in the human body, seeing they were all united to Christ, and had fellowship with him and one another. This is confirmed from the Jewish worship and customs in sacrifice. The apostle applies this to feasting with idolaters. Eating food as part of a heathen sacrifice, was worshipping the idol to whom it was made, and having fellowship or communion with it; just as he who eats the Lord's supper, is accounted to partake in the Christian sacrifice, or as they who ate the Jewish sacrifices partook of what was offered on their altar. It was denying Christianity; for communion with Christ, and communion with devils, could never be had at once. If Christians venture into places, and join in sacrifices to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life, they will provoke God.
Verses 23-33: There were cases wherein Christians might eat what had been offered to idols, without sin. Such as when the flesh was sold in the market as common food, for the priest to whom it had been given. But a Christian must not merely consider what is lawful, but what is expedient, and to edify others. Christianity by no means forbids the common offices of kindness, or allows uncourteous behaviour to any, however they may differ from us in religious sentiments or practices. But this is not to be understood of religious festivals, partaking in idolatrous worship. According to this advice of the apostle, Christians should take care not to use their liberty to the hurt of others, or to their own reproach. In eating and drinking, and in all we do, we should aim at the glory of God, at pleasing and honouring him. This is the great end of all religion, and directs us where express rules are wanting. A holy, peaceable, and benevolent spirit, will disarm the greatest enemies.

Today's Scripture Application

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue the book of 1st Corinthians with Chapter 10 and in our text we see Paul addressing the Church at Corinth to avoid idol worship. He goes on to explain that when facing temptation the Lord will make a way of escape and challenges us to so all for the Glory of God. In making application we see that we do not have to yield when we face temptation but rather look for a way of escape. Today the enemy uses the same tactics he has used for centuries but you can overcome the temptation, not sin, and do all for the Glory of God. How about you? Do you see that you don't have yield to temptation? Let us learn from our text today and the reminder of Paul the the Lord gives us a way of escape when we face temptation so let us look for this way out, so we will not sin, and can live in victory doing all for the Glory of God.

Winning the Race
1 Corinthians 9
  
 
1Am I am not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord?
 2If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.
 3Mine answer to them that do examine me is this,
 4Have we not power to eat and to drink?
 5Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?
 6Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power to forbear working?
 7Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?
 8Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also?
 9For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?
 10Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
 11If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?
 12If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
 13Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
 14Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
 15But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.
 16For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
 17For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.
 18What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.
 19For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
 20And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
 21To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
 22To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
 23And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.
 24Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
 25And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
 26I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
 27But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Today's Scripture Meaning 
 
The apostle shows his authority, and asserts his right to be maintained. (1-14) He waved this part of his Christian liberty, for the good of others. (15-23) He did all this, with care and diligence, in view of an unfading crown. (24-27)
Verses 1-14: It is not new for a minister to meet with unkind returns for good-will to a people, and diligent and successful services among them. To the cavils of some, the apostle answers, so as to set forth himself as an example of self-denial, for the good of others. He had a right to marry as well as other apostles, and to claim what was needful for his wife, and his children if he had any, from the churches, without labouring with his own hands to get it. Those who seek to do our souls good, should have food provided for them. But he renounced his right, rather than hinder his success by claiming it. It is the people's duty to maintain their minister. He may wave his right, as Paul did; but those transgress a precept of Christ, who deny or withhold due support.
Verses 15-23: It is the glory of a minister to deny himself, that he may serve Christ and save souls. But when a minister gives up his right for the sake of the gospel, he does more than his charge and office demands. By preaching the gospel, freely, the apostle showed that he acted from principles of zeal and love, and thus enjoyed much comfort and hope in his soul. And though he looked on the ceremonial law as a yoke taken off by Christ, yet he submitted to it, that he might work upon the Jews, do away their prejudices, prevail with them to hear the gospel, and win them over to Christ. Though he would transgress no laws of Christ, to please any man, yet he would accommodate himself to all men, where he might do it lawfully, to gain some. Doing good was the study and business of his life; and, that he might reach this end, he did not stand on privileges. We must carefully watch against extremes, and against relying on any thing but trust in Christ alone. We must not allow errors or faults, so as to hurt others, or disgrace the gospel.
Verses 24-27: The apostle compares himself to the racers and combatants in the Isthmian games, well known by the Corinthians. But in the Christian race all may run so as to obtain. There is the greatest encouragement, therefore, to persevere with all our strength, in this course. Those who ran in these games were kept to a spare diet. They used themselves to hardships. They practised the exercises. And those who pursue the interests of their souls, must combat hard with fleshly lusts. The body must not be suffered to rule. The apostle presses this advice on the Corinthians. He sets before himself and them the danger of yielding to fleshly desires, pampering the body, and its lusts and appetites. Holy fear of himself was needed to keep an apostle faithful: how much more is it needful for our preservation! Let us learn from hence humility and caution, and to watch against dangers which surround us while in the body. 

Today's Scripture Application

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue the book of 1st Corinthians with Chapter 9 and in our text we see addressing how the Christian is to support the leaders of the Church & how the Christian is like an athlete running a race which takes discipline, hard work, and preparation. In making application we see that the Christian is run a race, and to win the race we need prayer, bible study, and worship to win the race that is before us. How about you? Are you winning the race before you? Let us learn from our text today and the illustration of Paul to see that our Christian life is like a race and just as the athlete we need prayer, Bible reading, and worship to win the race that is set before us.
