Don’t Ever Quit!

A friend sent me this scripture today. How amazing. It ministered to me, I pray it ministers to you as well. Please enjoy and leave your comments as to what it speaks to you.

2 Corinthians 6:4-10 (NLT)

4 In everything we do,
we show that we are true ministers of God. We patiently endure troubles
and hardships and calamities of every kind. 5 We have been beaten, been
put in prison, faced angry mobs, worked to exhaustion, endured
sleepless nights, and gone without food. 6 We prove ourselves by our
purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy
Spirit within us, and by our sincere love. 7 We faithfully preach
the truth. God’s power is working in us. We use the weapons of
righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for
defense. 8 We serve God whether people honor us or despise us, whether
they slander us or praise us. We are honest, but they call us
impostors. 9 We are ignored, even though we are well known. We live
close to death, but we are still alive. We have been beaten, but we
have not been killed. 10 Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We
are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others. We own nothing, and
yet we have everything.

  1. Wow. I’m sure I’ve read these verses before at some point, but seeing them standing alone has revealed them in a different way. This is the story of true faith. This is what true Christianity looks like. Though we are beaten and in today’s world told we are intolerant and not politically correct, we still need to continue speaking truth and love. We prove ourselves by our fruits! The gospel NEVER changes!

    Thanks for sharing!
