Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

Brothers, we are renewed day by day, and we faint not as God's light lives inside each of us who know him.

3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Satin, who is the god of this world, has blinded the lost of this world. We are the light of God who must shine into the lost by the example of how we live. 

God uses us to help show the lost, who has been blinded by satin, the way to eternal life through Jesus Christ.

5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Brothers, we are all ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are the light of God. Our light is to grow brighter, and brighter as we walk through this life.

We are told in the verses below that we die day by day as Christ Jesus died for this world. But, our spirit is risen again each day just as Jesus rose from the dead, so to do we as born again believers in Jesus our Lord.

8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

Life works in you and I both physically and spiritually. So to does death of our flesh, but not in our spirit. Our spirits will never know death, only life eternal, because of Jesus.

13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Brothers, God's glory is our life. We are more than capable of enduing the trials and troubles of this life, for our hope is in the life to come, not this present life. But, we are to serve Jesus each and every day that we are on this earth.

17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Praise God!

God bless you my brothers in Christ Jesus.
