Such small words, but Paul uses them so poetically in his second epistle to the Corinthians, teaching and admonishing them as workers and ministers…


In much patience
In afflictions
In necessities
In distresses
In stripes
In imprisonments
In tumults
In labors
In watchings
In fastings

ByBy pureness
By knowledge
By longsuffering
By kindness
By the Holy Spirit
By love unfeigned
By the word of truth
By the power of God
By the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left
By honor and dishonor
By evil report and good report

AsAs deceivers, and yet true
As unknown, and yet well known
As dying, and behold we live
As chastened and not killed
As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing
As poor, yet making many rich
As having nothing, and yet possessing all things

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:17-18
