Paul’s relationship with the Corinthian church was…complicated. Frustrating, painful, emotional. And in his ministry as an apostle of Christ, he faced opposition, suffering, and severe tests. But it was the gospel of Jesus that gave Paul strength in his weakness, and all the hope and joy he needed to live the faith and not give up. And through the gospel, the Lord will give us, too, all the resources we need to live in this broken world with joyful hope, while we wait on the perfection of glory that is coming!
