Proclaiming Jesus Christ As Lord

4 in whom the god of this world blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, Who is the image of God, should not shine upon them. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord; and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake; 6 because it is the God Who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," Who shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
