Paul sets an example for the church in Corinth, and the church today, to follow. Because we have all we need in Christ, we are free to give up our rights for the sake of others and for the sake of the gospel.

We have freedom in Christ Jesus and are called to use our freedom for the sake of others; to love them and to serve them.

Our circumstances do not dictate our commitment to the Word of God. We are called to live in a manner worthy of our calling in whatever situation we find ourselves.

The Word of God touches even the most intimate aspects of our life - even our bodies.  But to trust the Word of God is to believe that God knows what's best for us and that there are blessings that come with obeying His Word.

As their spiritual father in the faith, Paul calls a "family meeting" for the church in Corinth.

Paul rebukes the Corinthian church for attempting to adopt worldly wisdom in building the church.  God's work is to be done in and by God's wisdom.  The means given for the building of the church is the faithful proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
