Proclaiming Jesus Christ As Lord

4 in whom the God of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest should shine unto them the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, which is the image of God. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus to be the Lord, and preach ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 For it is God that commanded the light to shine out of darkness, which hath shined in our hearts, for to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
