Title: Don’t Lose heart

Don’t Lose Heart
  • “having this ministry by the mercy of God”
    • “Having” – we currently possess something of value that gives us hope
    • “Mercy of God” – understanding the treasure of the gospel
    • “Ministry…” – as recipients of God’s mercy we are now ministers of God’s mercy
The Veiled Gospel
  • Veiled by our own actions – “disgracefull, underhanded ways” and/or “praticing cunning or tampering with God’s Word.”
  • “Veiled by Satan”
The Illuminated Gospel
  • “Open statement” – the clear proclamation of the gospel
  • God ultimately shines the light of faith and understanding in our hearts”
Beholding & Becoming
  • Behold
    • God made a way for salvation (mercy of God)
    • God gives us faith and understanding (2 Cor. 4:6)
  • Reflect
    • Proclaim to the gospel to those in darkness
    • Proclaim the gospel to one another and our own hearts.
