Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:2 - I beg of you that when I am present I may not have to show boldness with such confidence as I count on showing against some who suspect us of acting in worldly fashion.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:3 - For though we live in the world we are not carrying on a worldly war,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:4 - for the weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have divine power to destroy strongholds.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:5 - We destroy arguments and every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:6 - being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:7 - Look at what is before your eyes. If any one is confident that he is Christ's, let him remind himself that as he is Christ's, so are we.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:13 - But we will not boast beyond limit, but will keep to the limits God has apportioned us, to reach even to you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:14 - For we are not overextending ourselves, as though we did not reach you; we were the first to come all the way to you with the gospel of Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:15 - We do not boast beyond limit, in other men's labors; but our hope is that as your faith increases, our field among you may be greatly enlarged,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:16 - so that we may preach the gospel in lands beyond you, without boasting of work already done in another's field.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:17 - "Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord."
