Paul returns to the subject of money. He loved the Lord's people, and if the spiritual things he had been writing about took a hold of them, then he could write about the everyday living of the Christian life.
V. 3-7 The believers in Jerusalem were poor. He desired to take money to them to help them. Christianity is living for the help and good of others a. their physical needs as well as their spiritual.
V. 10-11 Timothy was inclined to be timid, and the Corinthians were inclined to be worldly and proud. They were to take good care of him.
V. 13-14 A stirring call to faithfulness.
V. 15-16 Faithful men were to be submitted to.
V. 22 There was to be no mixing; Christianity is whole-hearted. None at Corinth are saluted by name.
V. 24 Paul's love closes this wonderful book. The errors he warned against, still exist today amongst believers. Did you benefit? Are you willing to act in obedience to God's Word?
