Do not be a Stumbling Block

Do not be stumbling block – 1 Cor 6:3-4 

Vs 3 – Paul makes it clear that he himself and those of his preaching party will never put a stumbling block or obstacle in the way of anyone because they do not want their ministry discredited. Paul is here to help people and not hinder them. Our aim should be the same. Our words and action should be foremost exhibiting this concept.
Vs 4 – Paul says it is their aim as apostles is to commend themselves in every way to win others for Jesus Christ. Paul knew his role and how it must be lived out. He knew he has two audiences, the Lord and the world. With endurance they dealt with hardship, trouble and distresses. Paul knew that the gospel needed to be preached and lived. He knew that it was not an easy road but one worth living because there are benefits in this life and the next.
