The Gospel is No Secret–2 Corinthians 4 part 1

The Good news of Salvation was never intended to be a secret.  God made it clear.  We cannot be good enough to get to God; BUT, he loved us so much that he came to us on our terms and gave his all to restore that which had been taken by sin.

 It is not a mystery because he wants to have the relationship with us.  Those who are unable to see it, struggle because surrender is the hardest task to take on.  We do not mind doing Christianity, because we can check that off.  But walking in a life that requires us to follow not control—is too hard and takes too long.  That is why many folks refuse or can’t see the freedom God offers.  It is a simple but difficult life.  Help me to reveal to others what you have revealed to me.

 God Bless You

 1 Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. 2 Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we 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 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
