This is a very interesting way to address this church community! He doesn’t flatter them. He’s no hypocrite who says one thing to your face but speaks badly behind your back. Paul addresses them honestly throughout this letter. On another occasion, Paul encourages us,
‘Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ’ (Ephesians 4:10).
