Are you Serving God? 2 Cor. 4:1-6

Posted 3/11/2018

Sunday morning message by Pastor Lee Evans

Are you Serving God?
2 Cor. 4:1-6

 

2 Corinthians 4:1-6
1  Therefore, since we have this ministry,    as we have received mercy, we do not    lose heart. 2  But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, 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. 3  But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled        to those who are perishing, 4  whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. 5  For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, & ourselves your bondservants for Jesus' sake. 6  For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

 

1.  Serving is a Blessing

•God has given us this Ministry, v. 1

“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me…putting me into the ministry, although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor and insolent…” 1 Tim. 1:12

•God has gives us His Message , v. 3, 5

Paul’s message came from God, “the gospel of Jesus…” v. 4 (See: 2 Cor. 3:6) 

2. Serving is a Challenge

Discouragement , v. 1

 

“we faint not”  NKJV; “we do not give up” (CSB); a fainting the lead to “giving in to evil, or bad behavior” (See: Luke 18:1)

 

Dishonest people, v. 2

 

“hidden things of shame”  “craftiness” ; deceitful. 

 

•The Devil is active,  v 3-4 “the god of this age…” (See Eph. 6:9-12) 

 

3. Essentials for Serving 

Humility – “mercy” v. 1

Persistence – “we don’t lose heart” v. 1, 16; 1 Cor. 15: 58; 2 Tim. 4:6-8

Character –  v. 3-4 “we have renounced” ( aorist - once & for all)

Compassion , vv. 3, 4

“they are perishing”; “blinded by the god of this world”; “they are unbelieving”  

Preach  Jesus, v. 5  “For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord…”  
•Stay Engaged , vv. 6, 16

To God  &   Remember His Power &    Let Him work in Your Daily life

To your Church Family – “We” & “our”   (8 x) We NEEED each other!

To the Work God has for US to do   together!

 

In Conclusion: 

•Are you engaged in a Love Relationship with God?

•Will you get engaged in serving God together with your church family?
