God of This City
Ancient City of Corinth
Perhaps the most important city paul visited after antioch, syria. With the exception of efesus, paul stayed at corinth the longest. He wrote several long letters to address issues in the church.
Paul the tent maker (leather maker)
Paul the wise builder
1 Corinthians 3:10-11
Paul’s missionary strategy
1. Go to the Cities
2. Go to the Synagogues
Acts 9:20 [Damascus] ->Preached
Acts 13:5 [Salamis] ->Proclaimed
Acts 13:14 [Pisidian Antioch] ->Preached
Acts 14:1 [Iconium] ->Spoke effectively
Acts 17:1 [Thessalonica] ->He reasoned
Acts 17:10 [Berea] ->Preached
Acts 18:4 [Corinth] ->He reasoned
Acts 18:19 [Ephesus] ->Reasoned
Why go to the cities & to the synagogues?
Perhaps for 2 reasons
1. The potentials of a big city
2. The people in a big city
THE PEOPLE PAUL CONVERTED
Acts 17:16-17, 34
Vision for KL: Where are we moving towards?
For greater things have yet to come… and greater things are still to be done in this city…
