Some days we just forget. We forget the house keys. We forget the directions. We forget to return a friend's phone call. We forget why we went to the grocery store in the first place. And sometimes, we forget that we belong to Jesus. It's not intentional, but it happens. The church in Corinth had forgotten. They were divisive. Insensitive. Argumentative. Rebellious. They listened to false teachers who questioned the message of Christ and who accused Paul of being unreliable and a false apostle. Paul knew the Corinthian church needed a reminder, so he wrote a heartfelt letter defending his character, ministry, and message. The letter reminds the Corinthians to turn from their worldly ways and to think and live in ways that honor God. Likewise, Paul's letter encourages us to look at our own lives so we won't forget what really matters.
