2 Corinthians 10:6 (KJV) The Best Revenge of Wrong

2 Corinthians 10:6 (KJV)
And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
I have no doubt but that the common understanding of this passage, that Paul was prepared to deal with the disobedient once he was assured that the church was in order, is a good one. That Paul’s first goal was to lead the church into obedience and only afterwards would he discipline those who refuse to get right makes sense with the Scriptures.
But I see another interpretation that has merit and instruction. Obedience is in itself the best revenge against disobedience.
The most gratifying of outcomes for the preacher is not:
  • Seeing the sinner condemned 
  • Watching the wayward fall or
  • Hearing of the backslidden’s pain
What brings the greatest joy to the preacher, and the thing that to him best vindicates wrongs committed, is to see the most disobedient
  • turn, 
  • repent and 
  • follow the message of God’s Word.
