Today we examine a rather innocuous text at first glance. I records the end of the Second Great missionary journey of Paul, over 2800 miles of tough ministry. It centers on ministry in the city of Corinth, and even though we have only a brief account of Paul’s time there, he likely spent over two years preaching and discipling in Corinth. In the middle of the account we are confronted with an issue that has touched all of us: what happens when it appears like God doesn’t keep His promise? We focus on this question as we peer deeply into this text and the character of a Promise-making and Promise-keeping God.
