Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

9:14 ordained. The principle that God-called pastors and others who have been called by God to devote full time to the gospel ministry should be supported by those whose income is from secular sources is thus actually an ordinance of God. They may choose, as Paul did on occasion, to support themselves in other ways, but this should not be expected or required of them.
