2 Corinthians 10:1-6
Yesterday we highlighted the gentleness which all evangelists need. Here we emphasize the boldness that’s required. Paul does not destroy people, but he does destroy arguments when the time is right. He takes thoughts captive to Christ. And that’s the secret to the gentleness/boldness combination: Christ. If we ourselves are captive to Him then His love must be evident in gentleness. But if He has captured our hearts then we cannot be content for falsehoods to rob people of our precious Jesus – we must boldly oppose them.
PRAY for great discernment to know how to be gentle and bold in our witness.
