The apostle Paul founded many churches in the Roman Empire, including one in the prominent city of Corinth. As the commercial capital of the region, its citizens were rich, immoral, and had little self-control. Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthians to urge them to live as citizens of God’s kingdom and separate themselves from the sinful practices of the world around them. He offers practical guidance on each issue they are facing, revealing to them—and us today—what it truly means to be a member of the Body of Christ and truly love one another as Jesus first loved us.
