The Heart of the Gospel

Read 2 Corinthians 4:1-6

We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the Glory of the Lord, are being transformed. 2 Corinthians 3:18

As messengers of God's love, we are to be human mirrors who reflect without distortion a growing likeness to our Lord. We are not to walk in "craftiness" (2 Cor. 4:2) If our lives reflect an image that is spiritually blurred, the truth of saving grace may not be clearly communicated (vv.3-5).

We are also to share the Biblical essentials of faith clearly. We must not handle the Word of God "deceitfully" (v.2) and our lives are to be marked by love for God an others
(1 John 5: 1-2).

Lets be sure that we reflect a clear image of Jesus" likeness, the truth of God, and love - Vernon Grounds

Called to be salt and light in this world,
Called to preserve and shine,
Called to reflect the Glory of God,
Oh what a calling is mine - Fitzhugh

The primary reason for living in this world is to reflect the likeness of Christ
