Eager to Preach the Gospel Part 1
Paul was eager to preach the gospel. He is confident the gospel always bears fruit and expects to reap a harvest. Secondly, Paul saw himself as under obligation. It is not that they had given anything to Paul that he needed to pay back, but that he had been given something to pass on to them: the gospel. Paul wrote to the Corinthians it was woe to him not to preach the gospel.
