Summary: Acts 18 marks the conclusion of Paul's second evangelistic journey as well as the beginning of the well-storied Corinthian church.  One might expect this beginning to be heroically auspicious as it derives from the ministry of the most beloved Paul. However, this particular beginning emerges far more relatable from the awareness of a suffering journey and Paul's subsequent response. Join us to hear God's reaction to fear in the life of Paul. From within these eleven verses emerges a focal point of Paul's service to the Corinthian believers that continues to resonate through Paul's words into our lives today: 

"So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength]." 2 Corinthians 12:10 (Amplified Bible)
