“God, with his mercy, gave us this work to do, so we don’t give up.
But we have turned away from secret and shameful ways.
We use no trickery, and we do not change the teaching of God.
We teach the truth plainly, showing everyone who we are.
Then they can know in their hearts what kind of people we are in God’s sight.
If the Good News that we preach is hidden, it is hidden only to those who are lost. The devil who rules this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe. They cannot see the light of the Good News– the Good News about the glory of Christ, who is exactly like God.
We do not preach about ourselves, but we preach that Jesus Christ is Lord and that we are your servants for Jesus.
God once said, “Let the light shine out of the darkness!”
This is the same God who made his light shine in our hearts by letting us know the glory of God that is in the face of Christ.” – 2 Corinthians 4:1-6
