Paul Has Been Given the Authority by the LORD
Today's Passage: 2 Corinthians 10:1-11
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
1. Now I, Paul, appeal to you with the gentleness and kindness of Christ ⏤
though I realize you think I am timid in person and bold only when I write from far away.
2. Well, I am begging you now so that when I come I won't have to be bold with those who think we act from human motives.
3. We are human, but we don't wage war as humans do.
4. We use God's mighty weapons, not worldly weapons,
to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.
5. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God.
We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.
6. And after you have become fully obedient,
we will punish everyone who remains disobedient.
7. Look at the obvious facts. Those who say they belong to Christ must
recognize that we belong to Christ as much as they do.
8. I may seem to be boasting too much about the authority given to us by the Lord.
But our authority builds you up; it doesn't tear you down.
So I will not be ashamed of using my authority.
9. I'm not trying to frighten you by my letters.
10. For some say, "Paul's letters are demanding and forceful,
but in person he is weak, and his speeches are worthless!"
11. Those people should realize that our actions when we arrive in person
will be as forceful as what we say in our letters from far away.
2 Corinthians 10:1-11 NLT
