Bible Verses: 1 Thessalonians 5:12-282 Corinthians 4:1-16Proverbs 20:27Ecclesiastes 12:7
"God has shone in…for the shining forth." Here we learn that we are not meant to be the terminals of God's blessings but only the channels. The expression "God has shone in" refers to our conversion. Whereas in the original creation He commanded light to shine, in the new creation He Himself has shone in our hearts.

in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)

the Galatians really can be summed up in this way: a Christian is not one who

light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory

Bible Verses: 2 Corinthians 4:6
I saw a door standing open in heaven, and... the voice
said, “Come up here, and I will show you....” (Revelation

life? If not, then...
Bible Verses: Revelation 4:12 Corinthians 4:6
The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law.I am the light of the world.

It is...

I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim … And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!” § These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke of Him. § On the likeness of the throne was a likeness … of a man high above it … Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it....
