1 Corinthians 9:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?

1 Corinthians 9:11 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

11 If we have sown spiritual good among you, is it too much if we reap your material benefits?

We reap and then we sow. Evangelism and Discipleship are both needed in life.

1 Corinthians 9:12
KJV 12 If 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.
KJC 12 If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but tolerate all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.

These are my thoughts.
We are to not overpower people but to share the power of the Lord Jesus.

13 Do 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?

1 Corinthians 9:13 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

13 Do you not know that those who are employed in the temple service get their food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar share in what is sacrificed on the altar?

We are to only live off of what God gives us.

1 Corinthians 9:14
KJV 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
MLV 14 So, the Lord also commanded that those who are proclaiming the good-news, to live out of the good-news.

These are my thoughts.
We aren’t to just share thru words but share by living out the gospel, letting Him change our lives.

1 Corinthians 9:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 But 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.

1 Corinthians 9:15 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

15 But I have made no use of any of these rights, nor am I writing this so that they may be applied in my case. Indeed, I would rather die than that—no one will deprive me of my ground for boasting!

We need to feel this strong about us boasting in the Lord as well.

1 Corinthians 9:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 For 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!

1 Corinthians 9:16 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

16 If I proclaim the gospel, this gives me no ground for boasting, for an obligation is laid on me, and woe to me if I do not proclaim the gospel!

We should proclaim the gospel with a boldness boasting in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 9:17 King James Version (KJV)
17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.


1 Corinthians 9:17 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

17 For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward; but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with a commission.

1 Corinthians 9:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 And 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;

1 Corinthians 9:20 The Passion Translation (TPT)

20 I became Jewish to the Jewish people in order to win them to the Messiah. I became like one under the law to gain the people who were stuck under the law, even though I myself am not under the law.

These are my thoughts.
Paul was Jewish so he was being a fake or pretending to be someone he was not but choosing to live in the way he hadn’t to share the gospel sometimes we have to change how we do things to be a witness for the Lord this should never though hurt our walk with Him.

19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

1 Corinthians 9:19 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

19 For though I am free with respect to all, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I might win more of them.

Paul was free and he was Roman but because he wanted to win people he became a slave to Lord. We should also be slaves for Jesus.
