I hope that this 2 Corinthians 6 Commentary blesses you! Remember when I said that I’ll drop what I’m doing to do whatever the Lord leads in my last post? Well here we go! This is only part 1, as I only break down 2 verses. The Lord has impressed upon my heart to get this short post out as fast as possible. I haven’t the foggiest clue why, but someone must need to read it.
If anyone out there seems like that person could be you, please take what’s written to heart and just simply do whatever you think God is telling you to do. If you would, please contact me via email or leave a comment below. Something’s up with someone and I’m not sure what.
2 Corinthians 6:1-2
1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
Let’s put the brakes on right off the bat. Has God been graceful to you in vain? Has he saved you from an eternal future of hell and death only for you to take that liberty and actually do things against him? The Lord spoke something to my heart years ago. He said,”If you only knew how many gifts that I’ve given that are used against me…” Your salvation costs you nothing, but it was by no means free. The Lord gave the ultimate sacrifice, his only begotten Son, so that whosoever would believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16)
Another thing to take stock of, is the first part of the verse. Are we truly working together with him, or are we busy trying to get him to work for us? I confess, I’m guilty of that, and have been several times over to my own regret. It is my opinion that we cannot possibly work together with Christ in us, if we don’t have a firm grasp on what the Word of God has to say about him. Jesus must increase in our eyes, and we must decrease.
It is an astonishing thought that we serve a King that is willing to work together with us, that is proof of his meekness. He’s not our buddy or our lapdog. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End! We are fortunate that we serve such a gracious God, that wills to work with us on every level of our lives. From the major issues to simple mundane decisions, he’s right there and all things concerning you is important to him.
2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
There is a time accepted for the Lord to hear you. If you’re unsure of your salvation this is good news, and a piece of scripture you should take to heart! I believe that everyone on the planet has a time appointed for the Lord to hear them. Many people have come and gone. Some took that opportunity to hold fast to salvation on a day that the Lord appointed to hear them. Others did not believe on him and missed it, right unto death.
I can almost hear somebody unsaved ask,”How would you know when that time is?” Well, he gives you the answer right away. NOW IS THE ACCEPTED TIME, NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION! If you’re not saved, then your whole life has been building up to this very time, this very moment! Right now is your time, it’s the time that the Lord has appointed for you to take what little action is necessary for him to receive you unto himself.
And all that action is, would be a simple heartfelt prayer. Nothing fancy or pompous. If you haven’t received the Lord into your heart, I’ve created a page that can help you out and guide you with what to say to simply ask the Lord to forgive you of your sins, and to receive him into your heart. Go check it out at Revelation of Salvation. . Don’t miss YOUR day. None of us are promised tomorrow.
