II Corinthians 8:7-15

Step III: Immediate Context


The first 7 chapters of 2 Corinthians carries on Paul's side of the discussion that is going on with the church. The crisis has passed and Paul mingled his theology in a retelling of the events as he experienced them. His challenge for them to unite in a work of grace begins at Chapter 8 and continues through the end of the letter at the conclusion of chapter 9. The early portion of chapter 8 is the introduction of the exhortation to generous giving in the Lord's service.
