When confronted with sin, the Corinthian church responded with true repentance that led to forgiveness and hope. Looking to their example, as well as Isaiah’s vision of God on His throne, Alistair Begg invites us to share this experience by rightly seeing sin in the light of God’s holiness. God’s Word expands our understanding of God Himself, causing a sacred sorrow that makes us receptive to the salvation and hope of Jesus Christ.
8For even if I made you grieve with my letter, I do not regret it—though I did regret it, for I see that that letter grieved you, though only for a while.
