“In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 6:3 - We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 6:4 - But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 6:5 - in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 6:6 - by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 6:7 - by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 6:8 - by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true;
