Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. (2 Corinthians 4:1-2)
Christians are new creations in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).
As Christians, we live in newness of life. We are indwelt by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God fills our lives and perfects them. The fruit of the Spirit cultivates and enriches our lives. We are changed by the Holy Spirit from within. We are changed from glory into glory by the Spirit of God.
All the old things have passed away. Behold all things are become new.
We renounce the shameful things we do in the dark.
We refuse to practice cunning or underhanded methods. We don't practice deceit with one another.
We refuse to falsify God's word. We don't tamper with God's word. We recognize and respect everyone's conscience. We appeal to everyone's conscience in the sight of God.
We live and love by the Truth. The Spirit is Truth. It is the Spirit of God Who bears witness to the Truth.
We are vessels of God. We are to function properly for God's use.
May God have the glory.
