2 Corinthians 6 The Passion Translation (TPT)
6 Now, since we are God’s coworkers, we beg you not to take God’s marvelous grace for granted, allowing it to have no effect on your lives.[a] 2 For he says,
I listened to you at the time of my favor.
So can’t you see? Now is the time to respond to his favor! Now is the day of salvation! 3 We will not place obstacles[c] in anyone’s way that hinder them from coming to salvation so that our ministry will not be discredited. 4 Yet, as God’s servants, we prove ourselves authentic[d] in every way. For example:
We have great endurance[e] in hardships
11 My friends at Corinth, our hearts are wide open to you and we speak freely, holding nothing back from you. 12 If there is a block in our relationship, it is not with us, for we carry you in our hearts with great love, yet you still withhold your affections[o] from us. 13 So I speak to you as our children. Make room in your hearts for us as we have done for you.
The Temple of the Living God
14 Don’t continue to team up with unbelievers in mismatched alliances,[p] for what partnership is there between righteousness and rebellion? Who could mingle light with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between Christ and Satan?[q] Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What friendship does God’s temple[r] have with demons?[s] For indeed, we are the temple of the living God, just as God has said:
I will make my home in them and walk among them.
17 For this reason,
“Come out from among them and be separate,” says the Lord.
