After Paul is reassured by Christ, he devotes the next 18 months to ministering in Corinth. Ultimately, when the Lord is about to move Paul on to another place, opposition arises. We see that

  • When the Lord doesn’t hold back the kingdom of darkness, it will attack us
  • In this warfare, the Lord sometimes raises help for His people from unexpected sources
  • Though the Lord promises to work all things together for good to His children, this does not mean they will not be called upon to suffer for His name.

Each of these points is applied to us as we seek to make Christ known.
