Final Words to an Unruly Church

I Corinthians 16:1-24

Paul’s Corinthian letter is unique among his letters. This letter deals with an unruly church that must be rebuked, with faulty problems that must be corrected. The letter simply goes through problem after problem the Corinthians faced and the response of the apostle. But how does one end such a letter? Paul’s ending is helpful to every church in every age, including us at Willingdon. The basic principles Paul addresses in the closing chapter, when adhered to, will prevent the kinds of problems the Corinthians church wrestled with.
