Run to Finish Well
I cor. 9 : 24 – 10: 10
Its been said that if you don’t learn from history you are doomed to repeat its mistakes. Paul takes a moment to point out the blessings and the falleness of Israel when she started to walk with the Lord.
Why does he tell us this, well it seems there were a few Corinthians who thought they had a good handle on what it meant to be a follower of Jesus – but in their enthusiasm they were over playing their Christian liberty and they were getting close to the fire of sin and not only hurting themselves but maybe others in the process. Maybe we need to take a history lesson ourselves and not make the same mistakes too.
