Slave to Win

For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I may win more.
1 Corinthians 9:19 NASB

God, as a bond-servant to others for Jesus’ sake, I pray I would proclaim Jesus Christ, Your Son, is Lord. God, help me to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, to save some. Give me strength and courage to do everything to spread the Good News and share in its blessings. Help me, God, to not just do what is best for me but do what is best for others so that many may be saved. Use me for Your glory and the growing of Your kingdom, Lord, I pray, amen.

Philippians 1:1-2

Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints (holy ones, i.e., God’s people) in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi* (a leading city of the district of Macedonia, a Roman colony) including the overseers and deacons: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1:1‭-‬2 NASB

🌹As a holy one in You, Christ Jesus, I seek Your favor, not that of mankind, as Your bond-servant. I pray Lord God for Your called overseers who shepherd Your church which was purchased with Your own blood. I pray for Your called deacons who care for the members of Your body.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of Your great love with which You loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, You made us alive together with Christ. By grace we have been saved, and raised up with You, and seated us with You in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come You might show the surpassing riches of Your grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace we have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is a wonderful gift of You, God; not as a result of works, so that we may not boast. Lord, lift up Your countenance upon us, And give us peace.’ Amen

Continually Seeking Him, 



For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant (an owned slave) of Christ.
Galatians 1:10 NASB

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Mark 16:15 NASB

🌹but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts.
1 Thessalonians 2:4 NASB
