Greetings Everyone!

[Quick notice: We have a new film in the pipeline, a piece of content that we have no doubt is extremely important for the Body of Christ at large. We're needing some help with the practicalities/financial costs associated, so if you would like to help with this, to make it happen, and get more info ahead of release, please feel free to drop us a line. We very much value your interest/support.]

This morning's teaching episode of Into the Pray moves deeper into Paul's jolting thinking in 1 Corinthians chapter 9 and continues to provoke us to reconsider how it is that we conduct ourselves as disciples - do we have the same selfless attitude of Paul or are we perhaps dogged more by the type of thinking akin to the dysfunctional Corinthians?

Three questions for us:

- What does Paul's defence of his apostleship teach us today?
- How/when are we like the Corinthians who obsessed over claiming their rights?
- What about British society and the Church in this regard? 

Please tune-in next Sunday for the conclusion of this chapter with this summary in mind:

Paul’s defence of his apostleship is to lay the reasonableness of his rights as an apostle as the top soil BUT his inner freedom to forgo such rights as the bedrock on which this soil sits.

This is what made Paul such an exemplary lover and follower of Christ.

"What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as theLord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building." (1 Corinthians 3: 5-9)

Please do consider sharing this podcast to your networks.

Also if you would like to help support this podcast and the wider work we're pioneering, including efforts to improve our podcast videos, we would be very grateful as we increasingly find ourselves at capacity in more ways than one. You can give here.

Lots of love,
