Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 5:7


5:7 For we cannot clearly see him in this life, wherein we walk by faith only: an evidence, indeed, that necessarily implies a kind of seeing him who is invisible; yet as far beneath what we shall have in eternity, as it is above that of bare, unassisted reason.

    sis Irene, I am with you because I only utilize the KJV. However, let us not be so dogmatic about any bible translation. Kjv is very reliable, but there are other reliable ones also. All that matters is a changed life in Christ.
  • Irene123
    Vs. 20 - being an ambassador for Christ (God) entails taking ONLY the Word of God to souls - with no 'outside' writings added. His Word, the KJV Bible, is all He has given us.
  • Irene123
    Vs. 18-19; through His death Jesus provided reconciliation for both Jew and Gentile. When the Jews and Gentile are reconciled to God, they will be reconciled to one another. What peace treaties and piece conferences cannot do - the blood of Jesus can.

    We will walk by Faith and Not by Sight. Jesus was given to us from our Father in Heaven with his Words . We have to believe that Jesus is the Son of the Living God who came in flesh. His words are given to us not to figure out but to BELIEVE IN HIS WORDS AND OBEY THEM . Thru God's words we might be made the righteousness thru Jesus Amen

    I have faith, God. Hallelujah, thank you Jesus.
