Living as Christ Leads Us

John Stange 

1 Corinthians 16:1-11

I. Give as the Lord prospers you (v. 1-4)

Philippians 4:18 –  I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God.

II. Walk through the doors He opens for you (v. 5-9)

Ephesians 5:15-16 – 15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.

James 4:13-15 – 13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— 14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”

III. Help those who sacrificially serve you (v. 10-11)

1 Timothy 5:23 – No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.
