“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
“Even though I am free of the demands and expectations of everyone,
I have voluntarily become a servant to any and all in order to reach a wide range of people:
I didn’t take on their way of life.
I kept my bearings in Christ—but I entered their world and tried to experience things from their point of view.
I’ve become just about every sort of servant there is in my attempts to lead those I meet into a God-saved life.
I did all this because of the Message.
I didn’t just want to talk about it;
I wanted to be in on it!”
1 Corinthians 9:19-23 (The Message Translation)
