How God Gets the Gospel Out
--We won’t lose heart (vv1 & 16) despite our difficulties BECAUSE…
--We have a ministry to do (v1), and we’ll refuse to use gimmicks in our ministry (v2).
--We’ll keep in mind that suffering is temporary (vv14-18).
--We’ll keep thanking God (v15).
--We’ll rejoice that our inner man is constantly being renewed (v16) through reading and memorizing and meditating on and studying Scripture, through prayer, through worship, through regular sabbath rest.
