Cary Cox, from 2 Corinthians 6:1-13. When we are reconciled to God through Jesus, we are also reconciled to his church! When we get Jesus, we get his people, too! Following Jesus involves keeping things right between us and the church. Showing that we are genuine Christians means we continue to receive Jesus’ messengers and message – the preachers he gives us who proclaim the gospel. This is what we learn in chapter 6. Paul is defending his ministry as sent from God, and calling the Corinthians to respond by receiving him and his gospel, because now is the day of salvation!
