The Gospel of the Glory of Christ

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:1 -

Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:2 - but we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:3 - And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled [fn]to those who are perishing,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:4 - in whose case the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelieving [fn]so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:5 - For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your slaves [fn]for the sake of Jesus.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:6 - For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:7 -

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:8 - in every way afflicted, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:9 - persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:10 - always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:11 - For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:12 - So death works in us, but life in you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:13 -

But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE,” we also believe, therefore we also speak,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:14 - knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and will present us with you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:15 - For all things are for your sakes, so that the grace which is [fn]spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:16 -

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:17 - For our momentary, light affliction is working out for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 4:18 - while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
