2 Corinthians 10:1-11
v1-6: Ministry is war. It is a spiritual war against spiritual enemies. The devil want to keep people from faith in Jesus and obedience to the gospel. “Ignorance, prejudice, and sinful desires are Satan’s strongholds in the souls of some people.” But the Word of God accompanied by the grace and power of God is able to demolish these strongholds.
v7-11: We must not think that we are the only ones who belongs to Christ and no-one else does except us. “There is room in Christ for many, and those who differ much from one another may still be one in him. It would help heal the differences among us if we remembered that however confident we may be that we belong to Christ, nevertheless, at the same time, we must allow that those who differ from us may also belong to Christ, and we should therefore treat them accordingly.”
