He [Christ] died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.—2 Cor. 5:15.
“Paul ministered for the Corinthians’ sake because he was compelled by the love displayed in Christ’s death. He died to redeem the lost so those for whom he died might live for him. Because this was the purpose of Christ’s death, it became the goal of Paul’s ministry.” – Richard L. Pratt Jr.
