The ending of New Testament letters is always important to slow down and consider. They usually give some final warnings and final instructions for the recipients of the letter. Paul has written this letter to the Corinthians to spiritually build them up before he arrives. He wants them to make changes in their lives by looking at how Paul has treated them and model a life in Christ. One of the primary messages of this book is that we are made perfect and complete through our weaknesses, sufferings, trials, and difficulties. Paul opened this letter by reminding the Christians that the God we serve is the God of comfort.
