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.
