The Light of the Gospel

4 Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God,[a] we do not lose heart.But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice[b] cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants[c]for Jesus’ sake.For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 

2 Corinthians 4:1-6

Our job is to simply shine the light or let the light shine. 
Not penetrate the darkness. 
That’s the light’s job. 
At times, it takes multiple sources of the light. 
At times it takes the darkness to get darker to see the light clearer. 

Stop being God. We have no power to save. Only the Gospel does. Let it SHINE. CB Young

there's always the "best way" to do things, but sometimes we just can't have it that way.
