Godly Sincerity

Key Verse

“For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward” (2 Corinthians 1:12).

TEXT — 2 Corinthians 1:12-24


Sincerity is an essential virtue of a genuine Christian. Salvation carries a total transformation of the fleshly and untoward character traits such as craftiness, hypocrisy, duplicity, self-conceit, violence, oppression, pride and other social and moral vices with it. A Christian’s behaviour is typified by godly sincerity and humility so that the preaching of the gospel is not hindered. Sincerity involves speaking the whole truth in love and humility, and living a life in line with the truth being professed.

Apostle Paul pointed out the exemplary life he lived among the Corinthian brethren when he addressed the members of the church and “all the saints which are in all Achaia”. He called them boldly to witness to his life of “simplicity and godly sincerity… by the grace of God”.

Apostle Paul was also able to testify to the truism of all the promises of God in Christ Jesus as “yea” and “amen”. With companions such as Silvanus (or Silas), Timotheus (or Timothy) and armed with the gospel of truth and godly sincerity, Paul was able to preach, through Macedonia to Judea and back, confirming the saints and rebuking the straying ones.

Paul’s manner of life and speech are sources of succour and confidence for heaven-bound Christians. He confirmed the assurance and dependability of Christ’s gospel and promises. He sealed his affirmation with the confession of the anointing by God. What a challenge! Today’s earnest demand in the church, in public and private life is ‘godly sincerity’. If we set our minds to it, it is achievable, by the grace of God.

Thought for the day

Godly sincerity is a mark of true Christianity.
