2 Corinthians 5:11-12

The Ministry of Reconciliation

11Therefore, knowing athe fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But bwhat we are is known to God, and I hope it is known also to your conscience. 12 cWe are not commending ourselves to you again but dgiving you cause to boast about us, so that you may be able to answer those who boast about outward appearance and not about what is in the heart.
