Christian lifestyle

  1. 1. CHRISTIAN LIFESTYLE 1 Corinthians
  2. 2. 35 I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:35
  3. 3. KEY LIFESTYLE CONCERNS 1.To live a life that is pleasing to the Lord 2.Allow us to live in peace and to be supportive of one another 3.Allows us to reach the lost
  4. 4. 1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that we all possess knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 2 The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. 3 But the man who loves God is known by God. 1 Corinthians 8
  5. 5. 1.All believers possess knowledge 2.The product of knowledge alone is PRIDE 3.When knowledge is tempered by love there is EDIFICATION 4.The ultimate form of knowledge – to be KNOWN by God
  6. 6. Does your lifestyle reflect your commitment to Christ? What criteria do you look to when your make lifestyle choices? Do you have difficulty balancing truth and love?
  7. 7. 4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world and that there is no God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ,
  8. 8. 7 But not everyone knows this. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat such food they think of it as having been sacrificed to an idol, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. 8 But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.
  9. 9. 9 Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10 For if anyone with a weak conscience sees you who have this knowledge eating in an idol’s temple, won’t he be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols? 11 So this weak brother, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your
  10. 10. 12 When you sin against your brothers in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. 13 Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause him to fall.
  11. 11. 1 CORINTHIANS 9:19– 23 19 Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law
  12. 12. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. 23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.
