it is great when it happens

I think we all have our "pet verses" from the Bible. We have those verses that, without the bonds of a lectionary, would show up in sermon series after sermon series. One of those passages for me is 1 Cor 9.16-23; especially the final verse - "I became all things to all people, so that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, so that I may share in its blessings."

I'm excited to have an excuse to exegete (in my own sort of way) this passage. I know it and I love it, but it'll be nice to get to know it better. It won't be easy, most of the online resources I use are gospel-centric, but I'm going to find out more about 1 Cor 6.16-23. Won't you join me?
