Do you have everything you want?
Paul is listing things about their ministry that explain his point in 2 Corinthians 6:1, “Don’t receive the grace of God in vain.” And he’s explaining the list of situations where we are called to be servants of God. The list can be pretty bleak. These last 3 conditions in this verse wrap up the list. But I want to focus on the last phrase he mentions, “having nothing yet possessing everything.”
We get the grace of God to ship it. If we hold on to it, it rots. Our job is to distribute the grace of God to the world. When we let our affections take over, we hang on to it and it goes bad in our warehouse.
See episode 655 where I talk about this too. Verse 12 (ESV, NET or NASB) also makes reference to how our affections restrict us and we’ll talk about that in the next episode.
