Episode 18 - Terrifically Alive
2 Corinthians 6:1-10
Companions as we are in this work with you, we beg you, please don’t squander one bit of this marvelous life God has given us.
Well, now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped.
People are watching us as we stay at our post, alertly, unswervingly . . . in hard times, tough times, bad times; when we’re beaten up, jailed, and mobbed; working hard, working late, working without eating; with pure heart, clear head, steady hand; in gentleness, holiness, and honest love.
True to our word, though distrusted; ignored by the world, but recognized by God; terrifically alive, though rumored to be dead; beaten within an inch of our lives, but refusing to die; immersed in tears, yet always filled with deep joy; living on handouts, yet enriching many; having nothing, having it all.
