V. 1-5 Paul really exposes his great heart of love for these Corinthians. It was because he loved them that he writes so plainly to them. He felt the grief too. But joy also!
V. 7-8 The guilty man, whom Paul had spoken about in the first epistle, chapter 5, has now repented, and so Paul tells them to show him love and to receive him back among them.
V. 11 There are two special "devices" of Satan. One of the danger that when a believer continues to keep on in a particular sin, the assembly where he attends does not put him (her) out of fellowship with them; the other is that we fail to be forgiving when there is true repentance.
V. 15-16 Whenever Christ is preached, it is a "sweet savor" to God. God delights to hear the gospel, and to hear His beloved Son presented as Savior. If the message is accepted, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God.
