A Brief Exposition of 2 Corinthians, (Admonitions To Seek Restoration)

Beloved,

Paul then returns to a subject that he addressed in his first letter to the Corinthian Church. Previously Paul had directed the Church to remove immorality from their midst by removing the man whom had taken his father’s wife in an inappropriate sexual relationship. It is of great consequence to here recognize the joyous fruit of such restorative discipline. Paul advocates for the one who had been removed at his insistence; the very same one who has repented of his sin. The purpose of this reuniting with the body of Christ is the intended consequence of placing the wanton sinner at the disposal of the evil one; to bring genuine contrition and repentance. Upon such repentance there is a need to restore the wayward sinner back into proper fellowship with the faith community so that he not be overwhelmed in excessive sorrow.
The sweetness of restoration Paul likens to the aroma of fragrance burned on the altar. The Apostle’s specific point here is that the workings of faith in the world should be noticeable; that is, sweet to those who are of kindred spirit but a smell of death to those who are opposed. The removal of the sinful man for immorality would not have been understood in the culture of Corinth unless the Spirit of God illumined the minds and hearts of the Church there. Upon this illumination even within the heart of the offender, restoration produces a bond that is even stronger than before and solidifies the mandates of God’s revealed word by the outpouring of Christian love for one another even in the face of offences.
