Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 6:11


6:11 From the praise of the Christian ministry, which he began #2Cor 2:14|, he now draws his affectionate exhortation. O ye Corinthians - He seldom uses this appellation. But it has here a peculiar force. Our mouth is opened toward you - With uncommon freedom, because our heart is enlarged - In tenderness.

    Hi Kurt; I like what you said regarding "our own whims, emotions, and personalities," and that "we must keep the discipline of God's intentions within us." The Word, "LET this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus;" like in the Proverbs, "LET thine heart retain MY WORDS;" our discipleship is toward moral excellence out of a good and honest heart, PROVING what is acceptable TO GOD in TRUTH.
  • Kurt
    How can we bring the Gospel to sinners without sinning? Take another Christian and have an entry and exit plan. Arm yourself with the Truth (Jesus), and the Spirit. Allow God to work his love towards sinners thru us, yet remain safely separate in the Armour, lest we may fall. We are subject to our own whims, emotions, and personalities, yet we must keep the discipline of God's intentions within us

    Verse 2 is quoting Isaiah 49:8. Now is the especially acceptable time. We don't want to miss the purpose of God's undeserved kindness.

I will help anyone with almost anything,the Price: Hearing The Way of Salvation. I sometimes take them Fishing or invite for Supper. Sometimes One will go to Church.

    Being unequally yoked with unbelievers is correct, but it means not to run with them not to restrain from witnessing to them.
