The Apostle Paul had been backed into a corner. After spending 18 months in Corinth helping to establish a church, he moved on in his mission to build more churches in Asia Minor. But back in Corinth, false teachers began to infiltrate the church; and they were intent on ruining Paul’s character and ministry. This threatened to separate and create chaos among this once-unified body. Paul wrote this intensely personal and biographical letter to defend his ministry and integrity against the slanderous attacks. Like a seasoned attorney, he deals firmly with the false teachers and their followers by focusing primarily on Christ while embracing his own weaknesses and imperfections. As a powerful reminder for struggling and maligned believers everywhere, Paul quotes the Savior: ’’My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.’’
