Bible: 2 Corinthians 4:1-4

Paul’s Perseverance in Ministry

4:1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, just as God has shown us mercy, 1  we do not become discouraged. 2  4:2 But we have rejected 3  shameful hidden deeds, 4  not behaving 5  with deceptiveness 6  or distorting the word of God, but by open proclamation of the truth we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience before God. 4:3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing, 4:4 among whom the god of this age has blinded the minds of those who do not believe 7  so they would not see the light of the glorious gospel 8  of Christ, 9  who is the image of God.
