Reading along with us in 2 Corinthians? Here’s today’s reading:

2 Corinthians 4 (ESV)

Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ… Continue Reading

  1. Early church division or just bickering for first few verses explain Paul’s self defense/correction

    reminds me nothing changes reflecting petty disputes are not knew yet I wonder how much they undermine and what future we have missed because of small actions and small thinking

  2. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

  3. “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

  4. A couples of my favorite verses on in this chapter. Verse 7 talks about the treasure we have in jars of clay to show that the power we have is not from us but from God. Our weaknesses have a purpose in Gods’ economy to keep us humble and dependent on Him, and convince us the power doesn’t come from us.

    And then verse 16, Though outwardly we are wasting away, inwardly we are being renewed day by day. What an incredible promise to rely on!!! Having a bad day, feeling sick and/or tired…that’s the wasting away part. But the confidence we have is God is renewing us from the inside out, day by day, in other words every day! It makes sense then to fix our eyes on what is unseen rather than what is seen, yes?
