We Do Not Lose Heart (2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2)Rene' Lawson, March 3, 2019
Part of the Sunday Sermons series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Paul takes claim that even though some people are questioning his discipleship, his faith is strong. Even in the face of persecution, he does not lose heart. In the same way, how many of us have been tempted to lose heart in the face of adversity and trail? With Christ by our side we can overcome!

2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2
12Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: 13And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: 14But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. 15But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. 16Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. 17Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2But 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. (KJV)
