This week, Pastor Brad Beers continues in chapter 4, where Paul uses irony to address the arrogance of some Corinthians who believe they have achieved spiritual superiority. He contrasts their self-satisfaction with the apostles’ hardships, illustrating true discipleship through humility and suffering. Paul then expresses his fatherly concern for their spiritual well-being, announcing his plan to visit and challenge their boastful claims, preferring to use gentle correction but prepared to be stern if necessary.
