Rev. Gaven Mize, pastor of Augustana Lutheran Church in Hickory, North Carolina, studies 2 Corinthians 6:2 on today’s episode: “For he says, ‘In a favorable time I listened to you,
and in a day of salvation I have helped you.’ Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” Rev. Mize talks about the time of favor, what the Kingdom of God means pre-cross versus post-cross, going to where Christ is, and correlation between favorable time and salvation.
