The People of the Kingdom
(Category 15 of 16)
1 Do awe begin again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as some others, bepistles of commendation to you or letters of commendation from you?
2 aYou are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men;
3 clearly you are an epistle of Christ, aministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not bon tablets of stone but con tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.
The Spirit, Not the Letter
4 And we have such trust through Christ toward God.
5 aNot that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but bour sufficiency is from God,

Glory of the New Covenant
7 But if athe ministry of death, bwritten and engraved on stones, was glorious, cso that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away,
8 how will athe ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious?
9 For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry aof righteousness exceeds much more in glory.
10 For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels.
11 For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious.
12 Therefore, since we have such hope, awe use great boldness of speech—
13 unlike Moses, awho put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at bthe end of what was passing away.
14 But atheir minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ.
15 But even to this day,when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart.
16 Nevertheless awhen one turns to the Lord, bthe veil is taken away.
17 Now athe Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is bliberty.
18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding aas in a mirror bthe glory of the Lord, care being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as 1by the Spirit of the Lord.
The Light of Christ’s Gospel
1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, aas we have received mercy, we bdo not lose heart.
2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor 1handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth acommending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
3 But even if our gospel is veiled, ait is veiled to those who are perishing,
4 whose minds athe god of this age bhas blinded,who do not believe, lest cthe light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, dwho is the image of God, should shine on them.
5 aFor we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and bourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake.
6 For it is the God awho commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has bshone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Cast Down but Unconquered
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, athat the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
8 We are ahard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 persecuted, but not aforsaken; bstruck down, but not destroyed—
10 aalways carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, bthat the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
11 For we who live aare always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death is working in us, but life in you.
13 And since we have athe same spirit of faith, according to what is written, b“I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak,
14 knowing that aHe who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you.
15 For aall things are for your sakes, that bgrace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.
Seeing the Invisible
16 Therefore we ado not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is bbeing renewed day by day.
17 For aour light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
18 awhile we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
