We have to work out this salvation trembling
through opening our hearts.
How do we do just that?
2 Corinthians 7:2
Especially when we have been grieved by offenses.
The commentaries focus on obedience.
"There is an almost infinite pathos in the entreaty
"make room in your hearts."
Uttered, we may well believe,
as from the very depths of the soul.
The undercurrent of thought flows on.
It's the second plea from Paul
to find a place of affection for idolators.
