I hope you will put up with me in a little foolishness. Yes, please put up with me! I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ…”

Key Points:

  • As a Spiritual father, Paul was jealous for the Corinthian church, not in a selfish way but that he wanted what was best for them
  • Paul talks of the Corinth church needing to be like a pure bride for christ
  • Paul was generous, like a father to his children
    • He provided for the needs
    • He sacrificed for the church
    • He did not charge unlike the “super apostles before him”
