Paul’s Final Advice

13This is the third time I am coming to visit you (and as the Scriptures say, “The facts of every case must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.”c)G5124G5154G2064G4314G5209G1909G4750G1417G2532G5140G3144G2476G3956G4487G24762I have already warned those who had been sinning when I was there on my second visit. Now I again warn them and all others, just as I did before, that next time I will not spare them.G4280G2532G4302G5613G3918G1208G2532G548G3568G1125G4258G2532G3956G3062G3754G1437G2064G1519G3825G5339G3756G53393I will give you all the proof you want that Christ speaks through me. Christ is not weak when he deals with you; he is powerful among you.G1893G2212G1382G5547G2980G1722G1698G3739G1519G5209G770G3756G770G235G1414G1722G52134Although he was crucified in weakness, he now lives by the power of God. We, too, are weak, just as Christ was, but when we deal with you we will be alive with him and will have God’s power.G1063G2532G1487G4717G1537G769G235G2198G1537G1411G2316G1063G2249G2532G770G1722G846G235G2198G4862G846G1537G1411G2316G1519G52095Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among youc; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith.G3985G1438G1487G2075G1722G4102G1381G1438G2228G1921G3756G1438G3754G2424G5547G2076G1722G5213G1509G2075G5100G966As you test yourselves, I hope you will recognize that we have not failed the test of apostolic authority.G1161G1679G3754G1097G3754G2249G2070G3756G967We pray to God that you will not do what is wrong by refusing our correction. I hope we won’t need to demonstrate our authority when we arrive. Do the right thing before we come—even if that makes it look like we have failed to demonstrate our authority.G1161G2172G4314G2316G5209G3361G4160G3367G2556G3756G2443G2249G5316G1384G235G2443G5210G4160G2570G1161G2249G5600G5613G968For we cannot oppose the truth, but must always stand for the truth.G1063G1410G3756G5100G2596G225G235G5228G2259We are glad to seem weak if it helps show that you are actually strong. We pray that you will become mature.G1063G2249G5463G3752G770G1161G5210G5600G1415G1161G5124G2532G2172G5216G267610I am writing this to you before I come, hoping that I won’t need to deal severely with you when I do come. For I want to use the authority the Lord has given me to strengthen you, not to tear you down.G5124G1223G1125G5023G548G3363G3918G5530G664G2596G1849G3739G2962G1325G3427G1519G3619G2532G3756G1519G2506
