Young's Literal Translation
1Because of this, having this ministration, according as we did receive kindness, we do not faint,
2but did renounce for ourselves the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor deceitfully using the word of God, but by the manifestation of the truth recommending ourselves unto every conscience of men, before God;
3and if also our good news is vailed, in those perishing it is vailed,
4in whom the god of this age did blind the minds of the unbelieving, that there doth not shine forth to them the enlightening of the good news of the glory of the Christ, who is the image of God;
5for not ourselves do we preach, but Christ Jesus -- Lord, and ourselves your servants because of Jesus;
6because [it is] God who said, Out of darkness light [is] to shine, who did shine in our hearts, for the enlightening of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Tonight's Prayer: Father, help me use my talents to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ.
