One response to “2 Cor 6:1-7

  1. This is a restorative, powerful message that draws men and does not put obstacles in their way. This is not the ceremonial law with harsh requirements and obligations. This is a time of favor when Christ is given to all and He stands ready to forgive.

    Paul lists the things by which he and others strive to bring men to Christ. They are not all gifts and abilities. There is also trial, struggle, pain, and loneliness. Paul knows that he is called also to suffer so that Christ may be known.
