Simplicity and Sincerity – 9/8/20

John Arevalo

2 Corinthians 1:12 – “For our boast is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we behaved in the world with simplicity and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God, and supremely so toward you” 


I love this passage, especially knowing that Paul is dealing with the so called “super apostles” (1 Cor. 11:15) who aimed to discredit his ministry. While these super apostles projected a worldly standard of success garnered by earthly wisdom, Paul simply bore witness to his simplicity and godly sincerity empowered by the grace of God. May it be so with you and I. May we be defined with simplicity and godly sincerity in all that we do for His glory today.
