'Why?' is a critically important question. Unless we are convinced that we have a good reason for doing something, we will stop at some point. Neither duty nor sentiment can keep us pressing on against impossible pressures. Paul wrote to the Corinthians because they were tempted to abandon the true gospel, and follow more comforting lies. To bring them back on track, the apostle explained his personal motivation for not giving up on Jesus, despite huge pressures. His testimony also gives us essential reasons for staying with Jesus and His gospel.
