Throughout his ministry, the Apostle Paul was surrounded by false teachers and spiritually blind listeners—men and women who professed outward faith, but were secretly fickle, faithless, or outright false. In contrast, Paul himself was dedicated to “setting forth the truth plainly.” In this sermon, Alistair Begg takes us through Paul’s defense of his God-centered approach to ministry in 2 Corinthians 4, which points us to the importance of focusing not on ourselves, but on the transformative power of Christ’s death and resurrection.
1Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God,1 we do not lose heart.
