What do you want? Shall I come to you with a rod, or in love and a spirit of gentleness? 1 Corinthians 4:21

After his many comments of chapter 4, which are tied in completely with the preceding chapters concerning “divisions” within the church, Paul asks in a forthright manner, “What do you want?” In essence, “The choice is up to you when I come and the results will be realized upon my arrival.” And the choices are given:

“For” refers directly back to what was just stated about Paul’s coming to Corinth and his discernment of the power rather than in puffed up words. Those who were puffed up were divisive and they were filled with words without substance.… Read the rest

For this reason I have sent Timothy to you, who is my beloved and faithful son in the Lord, who will remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church. 1 Corinthians 4:17

“For this reason” here will explain Paul’s previous statement which said, “Therefore I urge you, imitate me.” As it was noted, Paul wasn’t trying to cause a greater division by having those at Corinth imitate him over some other apostle.… Read the rest
