Watch Ye (1 Corinthians 16:9-16)Pastor Jared Shumate, August 5, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Paul, in writing to the church at Corinth, says "watch ye." He tells them to keep their eyes open and be vigilant, watchful for the dangers that the enemy puts before us on a daily basis.
They were probably discouraged that Paul was not coming. Even Timotheus and Apollos weren't coming. They might have been confused, just like our own church over the last seven months. But God sent His man for a reason.
We as a church are equipped to reach an immeasurable number of souls. But we must remain watchful. We have to beware of the weapons of the enemy.

1 Corinthians 16:9-16
9For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. 10Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do. 11Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren. 12As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time. 13Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. 14Let all your things be done with charity. 15I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,) 16That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth. (KJV)
