We do not lose heart (2 Cor. 4:1)

“Therefore,

Since it is by God’s mercy

That we are engaged

In this ministry,

We do not lose heart.”

Διὰ τοῦτο, ἔχοντες τὴν διακονίαν ταύτην, καθὼς ἠλεήθημεν, οὐκ ἐγκακοῦμεν,

Paul said that therefore, since it is by God’s mercy (Διὰ τοῦτο) that we are engaged (καθὼς ἠλεήθημεν) in this ministry (ἔχοντες τὴν διακονίαν ταύτην), we do not lose heart (οὐκ ἐγκακοῦμεν).  Paul returned to the integrity of his ministry.  God’s mercy engaged him in this ministry.  Therefore, he was not going to get discouraged or lose heart.  He would soldier on.  Paul would not get discouraged.  Do you get discouraged?
