1 Corinthians 9:27 (KJV) But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
Paul understood that all victory comes through the cross of Calvary. He knew if he did not keep his faith on the sacrifice Jesus made, then he was subject to fall. The Lord only has one way to victory. It does not matter if you are a preacher, or a layman, only Jesus and Him crucified brings complete and total victory.
(Read 2 Corinthians 4:5)
