2Co 4:1 Glory Through Suffering SUMMARY OF II CORINTHIANS 4: Paul's Sincerity and Earnestness in the Ministry. The Eyes of Some Blinded by the God of the World. Troubles and Persecution Redound to the Glory of God. Paul's Sufferings for the Gospel's Sake. Exposed to Death in Order to Carry Life. The Present Affliction Working Glory. The Unseen Things Eternal. Seeing we have this ministry. The ministry of the Spirit and of Life; of the new covenant, described in the preceding chapter. As we have received mercy, we faint not. Although Paul was a persecutor, Christ had mercy on him and called him to the ministry. Hence, he was under obligations to "faint not", though meeting trouble and persecution.
SAMUEL FELIX's comment on 2011-12-30 18:08:24:
The Apostil writes these letters to members of the church that Jesus Christ, who was sent by God, had established! These members, thou they had faith before Christ, needed to be restored daily as they were baptised in Christ(the church of the Apostils), who was the first High Priest and Apostil of our doctrine, the members were all served Holy communion, and they were sealed with the Holy Ghost By the laying on of the hands of an Apostil of Jesus Christ, thus completing the transformation from flesh to spirit. This scripture has been maid availible to the whole world in preperation for the coming of the Son of God who is no longer one individual member but is the Glorified Body: 1 Chorinthians 12 v 27 Many members one body! Jesus Christ is alive in this flesh!
