A good lesson from the Overcomingthetimes Blog. Blessings and enjoy!

II Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Just as apostle Paul was concerned and wrote to the church in Corinth, I am concerned for the spiritual wellbeing of our children, families, and our society on a whole today.

Paul writes, II Corinthians 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

As Paul challenged the believers, I challenge you the believers to never let the gospel be hidden in our lives, but to let it shine for all to see.

Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

The New Testament speaks of salvation, in the past tense (Ephesians 2:8), the present tense II Corinthians 2:15), and the future tense (I Corinthians 13:11). In the past, the believer has been saved from the penalty of sin. In the present, the believer is being saved from the power of sin. In the future, the believer will be saved from the presence of sin.
