Beware of the lifestyle of convenience and ease, wealth, rest and relaxation, carefree independence, and freedom to do whatever you please
with no restrictions. When taking it in, it doesn’t seem wrong or bad at all. But upon deeper reflection, there is something about this worldview that ultimately leaves people empty.

This morning Paul, by the inspiration of The Holy Spirit, shows how the letter of the law is superseded by the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul makes the comparison that, if the ministry that brought
condemnation was glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness!

In our study this week, Paul is concerned that the saints at Corinth are falling right into Satan's hands by refusing to forgive the repentant individual who was a cause of great pain and harm to them. That concern of Paul is a valid concern for us today. Oftentimes Satan is able to accomplish his evil genius in the life of a believer or a congregation when we fail to recognize the ways that he works to steal, kill, and destroy the people of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Today we read the beginning of Paul's defense against those who questioned his character and ministry. Due to changes in his travel plans, there were individuals (whom Paul later called, “false brethren” – 2 Corinthians 11:26) who began to poison the minds of the church at Corinth with lies and thoughts of suspicion about his apostolic genuineness and love and care for them.

Where can we find comfort in the midst of our difficulties? What is
the purpose for our struggles? Our God is a God who gives comfort and encouragement to us in our times of difficulty and affliction. God uses these sufferings to draw us nearer to Him, and to rely on Him and not ourselves, as He strengthens, encourages, and helps us.

Paul concludes his first letter to the Corinthians with an Aramaic phrase, “Maranatha”. It translates as, “Come, O Lord!” (1 Corinthians 16:22) It is a significant ending for his letter. Paul’s focus, as ours, is upon the anticipated return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
