2 Corinthians 4:1-6 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not give up. 2 Instead, we have renounced shameful secret things, not walking in deceit or distorting God’s message, but in God’s sight we commend ourselves to every person’s conscience by an open display of the truth. 3 But if, in fact, our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 Regarding them: the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For we are not proclaiming ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your slaves because of Jesus. 6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness” —He has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of God’s glory in the face of Jesus Christ.
There is a tragedy across the earth. Billions are blinded by the enemy, a veil over their eyes, they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ. Look back at 2 Cor 3:16, the veil is removed when a person turns to the Lord. Believers, we need to pray that God will remove the veil, shine His light in the lives of the lost, for they are perishing (v. 3).
Would you begin to pray today for someone you know who is blinded by Satan? Pray that God would open their eyes. Pray that God would shine His light in their lives. Pray that the next time they hear the gospel they will finally see what has been there all along.
You might just add their first name to a comment on this post. Then we could each look at the comments to know some others to pray for. Would you add someone today? Would you pray for someone today?
