3. His Faithfulness
16 For if I preach the gospel, I have no boast, for anecessity is laid upon me; for woe to me if I do not preach the gospel.
17 If I do this of my own will, I have a 1areward; but if not of my own will, I am bentrusted with a 2cstewardship.
18 What then is my reward? That in preaching the gospel I may present the gospel awithout charge, so as bnot to use to the full my right in the gospel.
19 For though I am afree from 1all, I have benslaved myself to 1all that I might gain the more.
20 And to the Jews I became aas a Jew in order that I might bgain Jews; to those cunder law, as under law (though I myself am dnot under law), that I might gain those under law.
21 To those awithout law, bas without law (though I am not 1without law to God but 2within claw to Christ), that I might gain those without law.
22 To the weak I abecame weak that I might gain the weak. To all men I have 1become ball things that I might by all means csave some.
23 And I do all things for the sake of the gospel that I may become a 1fellow apartaker of it.
