Worthy to be Received

2 Corinthians 7:2 KJV
Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.

Paul delivers to us three reasons he ought to be received by the Corinthians:
He had wronged no one
Paul's handling even of the terrible conditions existing in the church there was of such a nature that no one has been in any way harmed. Sin had been corrected, justice had been administered and it had been done for the good of even those who had done wrong.

He had corrupted no one
His doctrine and practice had rather led to the perfecting of their faith rather than the corrupting of it.

He has defrauded no one
Paul had not used his position for personal gain but rather for the benefit of the believers. He had personally sacrificed for their good

When one has a record such as that he has a right to ask to be received.
