1 Corinthians 9:14
KJV 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
BLB 14 So also, the Lord has prescribed to those proclaiming the gospel to live from the gospel.

These are my thoughts.
We aren?t to just share thru words but share by living out the gospel, letting Him change our lives.

This is true, but not what Paul is talking about here! He's saying that Christian workers should be paid for their work. "The Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel."
"Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God." (II Corinthians 7:1)

1 Corinthians 9:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.

1 Corinthians 9:15 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

15 But I have made no use of any of these rights, nor am I writing this so that they may be applied in my case. Indeed, I would rather die than that?no one will deprive me of my ground for boasting!

We need to feel this strong about us boasting in the Lord as well.

1 Corinthians 9:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

1 Corinthians 9:16 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

16 If I proclaim the gospel, this gives me no ground for boasting, for an obligation is laid on me, and woe to me if I do not proclaim the gospel!

We should indeed, but again that isn't really what Paul is talking about. Remember the context! He's saying that being an evangelist isn't like an ordinary job.  He wasn't doing it for the money! Like the prophet Jeremiah (Jeremiah 20:9), he had a deep inner compulsion to share God's truth; he couldn't help himself.

1 Corinthians 9:17 King James Version (KJV)
17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.

1 Corinthians 9:17
NSB 17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward. But if I do it against my will, I am just performing the trust of the good news committed to me.


These are my thoughts.
We should not be committed to our own will but be committed to His heavenly will for us.

1 Corinthians 9:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

1 Corinthians 9:20 The Passion Translation (TPT)

20 I became Jewish to the Jewish people in order to win them to the Messiah. I became like one under the law to gain the people who were stuck under the law, even though I myself am not under the law.

Paul was Jewish so he was being a fake or pretending to be someone he was not but choosing to live in the way he hadn?t to share the gospel sometimes we have to change how we do things to be a witness for the Lord this should never though hurt our walk with Him.

I disagree (unless you've left a 'not' out of your sentence - Paul was NOT being a fake Jew). When among Jews, Paul was an observant Jew - not because he was obliged (as a Christian) to follow all the rules of the Law, but out of deference to Jewish sensibilities, so as not to prejudice them against the Gospel.

1 Corinthians 9:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

1 Corinthians 9:19 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

19 For although I am a free man, not bound to do anyone?s bidding, I have made myself a slave to all in order to win as many people as possible.

Paul was free and he was Roman but because he wanted to win people he became a slave to Lord. We should also be slaves for Jesus.
