2 Corinthians 13:3-12(NET)
1 John 4:11 (NET)
How do you know that you are in Christ?
Here people seem to be demanding of Paul to where his authority comes from!
One way we know God is at work in us is how we are with one another! Yet Paul’s love for the church he was writing to was abundantly clear!
God’s love is made complete in us when we sing praise and worship STOP! NO that is NOT what the scripture says, but WHEN WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER! (See 1 Jn 4:11)
Paul’s heart (v9) that you may become fully qualified in building one another up in faith.
V12 greet one one other with a holy kiss – reminds me in cultures where one, two or some places three alternate kisses on the cheeks. Though I believe Paul is saying here that when we greet each other do it like you mean it – not just a superficial ‘hi how are you’ and then walk on by, but give yiur undivided attention to whom you greet – whether a meaningful handshake, hug or kiss do it in such away with honour and respect showing you are REALLY interested!
This is the first fruits of Christ in you!
