God’s glory can be found even in and through our suffering. His power is displayed through our weakness. Even in apparent defeat God is doing something in and through you! So become nothing, so God can make something out of you!
Paul encourages the church in Corinth to offer forgiveness, comfort, love, and restoration to one who offended Paul and the church. If repentance has taken place, it’s better to restore an offender rather than let him fall into despair. Forgive, comfort, love…that’s the way of Jesus.
