2 Corinthians 6:1-13 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
6 Working together[a] with Him, we also appeal to you, “Don’t receive God’s grace in vain.” 2 For He says:
I heard you in an acceptable time,
Look, now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation.
The Character of Paul’s Ministry
3 We give no opportunity for stumbling to anyone, so that the ministry will not be blamed. 4 But as God’s ministers, we commend ourselves in everything:
by great endurance, by afflictions,
11 We have spoken openly[c] to you, Corinthians; our heart has been opened wide. 12 You are not limited by us, but you are limited by your own affections. 13 I speak as to my children. As a proper response, you should also be open to us.
