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.

    I just want to say we all need our faith increse and i thank God for being God and to know we have him to look to from an evil wicked world things will end but his love will never and we have to belive that we didnt creat our self and really dont understand ourselves so we know to turn to our God our creator and thats enough

    Faith and Love is what we need. As well as belief of course. I'm disturbed by those who are so vigilant in their own interpretations I fear open minded change is what you proudly consider beneath you. I pray I am wrong forgive me if I mistake your passion and pride.

    Our love for Jesus moves us to work whole-souled in whatever we do for him.

    To Wm. - I just now noticed - quote, "I only utilize the KJV, BUT ..... "; telling me to be more liberal than you does not sound good. I have known the way of Jesus word for - 50 yrs.
  • William
    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.
