Live as You Are Called

1 Corinthians 7

17 But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And n so I 1 ordain in all the churches. 18 Was anyone called while circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? o Let him not be circumcised. 19 p Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but q keeping the commandments of God is what matters. 20 Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. 21 Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it. 22 For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is r the Lord's freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is s Christ's slave. 23 t You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with u God in that state in which he was called.
