"clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart." This quote from 2 Corinthians 3:3 from Apostle Paul was to encourage the saints at Corinth to continue living a life pleasing unto God.
History tells us that Corinth was a city-state located in southern Greece about 50 miles from Athens, and about two miles south of the narrow isthmus that forms a land bridge between the main landmass of Greece and the Peloponnesus. The isthmus is less than four miles wide. Corinth controlled the two major harbors and thus command of the trade routes between Asia and Rome. Ancient Corinth, by nature of being a seaport was reportedly a city of sensuality
"A famous temple to Aphrodite had stood on the summit of Acrocorinth in the Classical Age... It had fallen into ruins by Paul's time, but successors to its 1,000 cult prostitutes continued to ply their profession in the city below. Corinth was a city catering to sailors and traveling salesmen. Even by the Classical Age it had earned an unsavory reputation for its libertine atmosphere; The name "Corinth" became a synonym for immorality. This temple gave Corinth it's reputation for gross immorality of which Paul often spoke (1 Cor. 6:9-20; 2 Cor. 12:20-21).to call someone 'a Corinthian lass' was to impugn her morals. The very word korinthiazesthai, to live like a Corinthian, had become a part of the Greek language, and meant to live with drunken and immoral debauchery.
Paul's cry for the saints at Corinth was “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord.
Hearing Paul's plea, the Corinthians did repent and had a zeal for God and became (according to Titus) a comfort not only to the Apostles but extended with aid to the Macedonians.
It is my cry that you that are compromising God's standards will repent unto God and become Holy and acceptable unto Christ and will will a life before Him so that someone viewing your life may come asking "what must I do to be saved?"
