§  16 所以,我們不喪膽。外體雖然毀壞,內心卻一天新似一天。 17 我們這至暫至輕的苦楚,要為我們成就極重無比、永遠的榮耀。 18 原來我們不是顧念所見的,乃是顧念所不見的;因為所見的是暫時的,所不見的是永遠的(林後4:16-18)

§  By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

§  For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)

§  16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

d)    ____________ Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…』

who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. (Hebrews 12:1-3)
