To know God's love, to show God's love

Seen and Unseen

Paul frames the fourth chapter of 2 Corinthians with the repeated declaration that,

we do not lose heart.

2 Cor. 4:1, 16

And between these two claims he tries to explain why by drawing our attention to one of the central themes of the letter – the difference between the Seen and the Unseen. He highlights,

  • How we see

And then, building on that,

  • The danger of losing heart
  • The secret of taking heart
