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.

    Eternal caution: Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God.

    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.

    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
