II Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Our scripture text makes a profound statement as it relates to the god-Satan of this world and how he has blinded the minds of the masses in our society today just as he did during the writing of this text. Let’s be very clear, Satan is a defeated foe and his control on society is temporary. All humanity is encouraged to get right with God, accept His Son Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and spend eternity in His presence instead of being tormented for ever after this life is over. Believers are to walk in the light of Christ because we are of His righteousness.
It is Satan’s mission to destroy God’s kingdom by deceiving as many as he can. He does this by spreading false truths and or lies while making them very believable. What we as believers must do is to know the truth for ourselves and stand firm on the truth of God’s Word. We shine bright the light of Christ by standing firm on His word, living a godly life in word and in our walk. Knowing the truth of God’s Word comes from studying His word so we can rightly divide the word (2 Timothy 2:15).
Prayer is an important component in the Christian life as it our communication with God. When Satan sees believers in constant prayer he knows there is a strong relationship between the believer and God.
Believers, we are Christ’s lit candle so let your light shine for men to see Christ in you.
