May we be free to live in God’s time, a new time, in which there is a time for everything under heaven;
when slow is not too slow, and fast is not too fast. May we be transformed into people who see time as a gift and a
friend; who live as if we have time, because we know that God’s time will never cease.

Scripture Foci | 2 Corinthians 6:1-13
6:1 As we work together with God, we urge you also not to accept the grace of God in vain. 6:2 For God says,
“At an acceptable time I have listened to you, and on a day of salvation I have helped you.” See, now is the acceptable
time; see, now is the day of salvation! 6:3 We are putting no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found
with our ministry, 6:4 but as servants of God we have commended ourselves in every way: through great endurance,
in afflictions, hardships, calamities, 6:5 beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; 6:6 by purity,
knowledge, patience, kindness, holiness of spirit, genuine love, 6:7 truthful speech, and the power of God; with the
weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; 6:8 in honor and dishonor, in ill repute and good repute.
We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; 6:9 as unknown, and yet are well known; as dying, and see–we are alive;
as punished, and yet not killed; 6:10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing,
and yet possessing everything. 6:11 We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you. 6:12 There is
no restriction in our affections, but only in yours. 6:13 In return – I speak as to children – open wide your hearts also.
