Passage: 2 Corinthians 6:1-10 (RSV)

2 Corinthians 6

1Working together with him, then, we entreat you not to accept the grace of God in vain.
2For he says, "At the acceptable time I have listened to you, and helped you on the day of salvation." Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
3We put no obstacle in any one's way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry,
4but as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: through great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities,
5beatings, imprisonments, tumults, labors, watching, hunger;
6by purity, knowledge, forbearance, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love,
7truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left;
8in honor and dishonor, in ill repute and good repute. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true;
9as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as punished, and yet not killed;
10as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing everything.
