Helping the church get back on track - part 2! After sending 1st Corinthians to the church in Corinth, Paul has sent Timothy (and later Titus) to help sort out their problems. He even paid an emergency visit himself. Just as he was about to despair of getting the church to accept his answers Titus arrived back with the news that the Corinthians had repented and were now back on track. This epistle was sent on ahead of a final meeting with Paul to tie up some lose ends and encourage better leadership in the church. It provides us with a better model to follow too to make sure that we don't go off the rails! Helpful notes bring the significance of these chapters into focus, and speak clearly to us today.
