Confronting the Comfort Zone (1 Corinthians 4:14–21)

As much as he would have enjoyed a conflict-free ministry, Paul was committed to the message of the cross, which sometimes included the uncomfortable consequences flowing from it. He was willing, when necessary for the glory of God and the good of the church, to enter the conflict of confronting comfort zones that tempted his fellow believers. He aimed to move them from a cross-less comfort to a Christ-consuming commitment. We see him doing this in at least three ways in the text before us: 1. An Affectionate Confrontation (vv. 14–15) 2. An Appealing Confrontation (vv. 16–17) 3. An Authoritative Confrontation (vv. 18–21)
