After the resurrection of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit, a march of the Gospel started across the globe, going from city to city, establishing churches in Asia Minor.
Paul the apostle brought the message of Jesus to Corinth in 55 AD. Forty six miles west of Athens, Corinth was the capital city of the region of Achaia, a powerful city of 750,000 people of various ethnic origins. Located on an isthmus between two ports, the city was known for its great wealth, it was known for its bronze art, and it was most well known for the wild and wanton lifestyle common to a port city, and a pagan city. What happened in Corinth stayed in Corinth.
Acts 18 tells the story of the Apostle Paul, on his third missionary journey, bringing the gospel to Corinth. He stayed for eighteen months amidst great opposition in the pagan city, teaching the Bible to new converts: some Jewish and some Greek. With that, the Corinthian church was established!
When Paul left Corinth for Ephesus, opponents came into the new church who attempted to discredit the apostle Paul and his message of grace. They said Paul suffered too much to be a legitimate apostle. They said his personal weakness and the fact that he was not a very good speaker showed that he had no real authority, and his gospel was illegitimate. The church was confused about the gospel, and about Paul.
When Paul found out what was happening, he came back to Corinth immediately, only to find that by then, the church was openly against him. So he left and he sent a tearful letter, warning the church of judgment if they did not repent and return to the gospel. The Good News is, the majority did repent; but a minority of the rebellious remained under the influence of Paul’s opponents in the church. So Paul wrote a letter that we now know as 2 Corinthians in light of his pending visit to Corinth.
2 Corinthians says the church is to be…
Confident in God’s goodness and comfort in the midst of personal suffering
Confident that Jesus leads us into triumph
Confident in the message of Jesus and his gospel,
Confident that we are reconciled and made new
Confident that God loves us through his people
Confident that God will use our lives in the great endeavor of taking the gospel to the world.
Confident that God will provide what we need to serve him and others
Confident that God’s grace is enough to use us in spite of us.
Confident that Jesus Christ lives in me.
Because of Jesus…we are confident!
