We Do Not Lose Heart, Part Two

From Series: The Pastor's Study, Volume 7

2 Corinthians 4:7-18  (ID: 3170)

In 2 Corinthians, the Apostle Paul listed a multitude of severe hardships and persecutions he had faced, describing them as a “light affliction.” Alistair Begg calls pastors to consider Paul’s experiences when dealing with challenges in their own ministry. With confidence that one’s calling and appointment are from Christ Himself, relying on His Word for guidance and strength, and focused on serving those whom they lead, Christian ministers gain eternal perspective. Following Paul’s example, they can properly balance today’s trials against the surpassing glory of God’s coming Kingdom.


Treasure in Jars of Clay

7But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
