The Credentials of The Ambassador  (2 Cor. 6:4-10)

 

Paul’s credentials fall into 3 categories. First, he lists 9 hardships he's endured. Second, 9 qualities that he possesses and third he lists 9 contrasts and comparisons that are part not only of his ministry, but every ministry.

3. The Compassion of The Ambassador  

2 Cor. 6:11-13 “11 We have spoken freely to you,[a] Corinthians; our heart is wide open. 12 You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted in your own affections. 13 In return (I speak as to children) widen your hearts also.”


  • Is your heart wide open and compassionate for the lost, difficult, stubborn and often frustrating people that Jesus has placed in your life? 

  • Have you grown cold and indifferent or is your heart wide open? If so, how so? If not, why not? 


  • What can you do to move from a closed and guarded heart to a heart that’s wide open? 


  • Where do you need to ask for or offer forgiveness? In what areas may you need to repent and rededicate yourself to the calling of Christ? 


Prayer

Pray that in the areas where you’ve been hurt are hurt or hesitant to move towards this gospel calling that The Holy Spirit would comfort and encourage you to move beyond your disappointments and pain to a place of healing and compassionate love and service to others.
