Context Readings

Controlled By The Love Of Christ

10 For we must all be made manifest, in our true characters, before the Judgment-seat of Christ; so that each one may receive according to that which he has done in his body, whether good or evil. 11 So, because I know the fear of God, I "persuade men." What I am is manifest to God, and I hope manifest also to your conscience. 12 I am not "commending myself to you again," but I am giving you an occasion of boasting on my behalf, so that you may have an answer ready for those who boast in externals, and not in the heart.
