We have hope. In a world beset by pandemic threats and titanic fears, we have hope. In a country torn into screaming political factions, we have hope. At a time when racism and other “-isms” divide and humiliate us, we have hope. When our “outer nature is wasting away” we have hope that “our inner nature is renewed day by day” (v. 16). When we suffer setbacks and opposition, “we do not lose heart.” This is the good news of “the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (v. 4). We do not lose heart. We have hope. All glory be to God.
- 2 Corinthians 4:1-12
