2 Corinthians 7:1-6 GW

1 Since we have these promises, dear friends, we need to cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit and live a holy life in the fear of God.
2 Open your hearts to us. We haven't treated anyone unjustly, ruined anyone, or cheated anyone.
3 I'm not saying this to condemn you. I've already told you that you are in our hearts so that we will live and die together.
4 I have great confidence in you, and I have a lot of reasons to be proud of you. Even as we suffer, I'm encouraged and feel very happy.
5 Ever since we arrived in the province of Macedonia, we've had no rest. Instead, we suffer in a number of ways. Outwardly we have conflicts, and inwardly we have fears.
6 Yet God, who comforts those who are dejected, comforted us when Titus arrived.
