  2. 2. ©2013 Third Column Ministries 2 Corinthians 5:20 • "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.“ (NIV)
  3. 3. ©2013 Third Column Ministries 2 Timothy 2:24-25 • 22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. • 23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. • 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. • 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, • 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. (NIV)
  4. 4. ©2013 Third Column Ministries Colossians 4:5-6 • 5 Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. • 6 Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person. (NASB) • 6 Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.”(NLT)
  5. 5. ©2013 Third Column Ministries Jude 1:3 • “Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.” (ESV)
  6. 6. ©2013 Third Column Ministries 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 • 3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. • 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. • 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (NIV)
  7. 7. ©2013 Third Column Ministries Ephesians 4:29 • Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (NIV)
  8. 8. ©2013 Third Column Ministries 1 Peter 3:13-17 • And who will harm you if you are deeply committed to what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness, you are blessed. Do not fear what they fear or be disturbed, but honor the Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. However, do this with gentleness and respect, keeping your conscience clear, so that when you are accused, those who denounce your Christian life will be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil. (HSCB)
  9. 9. ©2013 Third Column Ministries Colossians 2:8 • See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. - (NIV)
