Context: Paul describes actions that should be set aside as a Christian. He reminds the Corinthians that the god of this age (Satan) has veiled the truth of the scripture from some, yet we are to be light in the darkness. As Christians, we have the valuable knowledge of the Word within us. Outwardly, we will still face challenges and illnesses, yet we should not fear, for as long as we trust in the Lord, we can never be completely destroyed, for life in Christ is eternal. Our life on earth is temporary and we should spread God's word with that in mind - we should spread God's word in urgency.
