II Corinthians 4:3 & 4 3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 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.
In II Corinthians we read "in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them that believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God should shine unto them". The god of this world system is Satan, and his primary work is to blind humanity to the light of God's Gospel. In so doing, men are blinded to the reality of sin, the decietfulness of sin, the destructiveness of sin, and the penality of sin. Though we hear little of sin in the pulpits of our day, sin is real! Man is born in sin and thus separated from God. Man is unrighteous by nature and at enmity with God. Man has no appetite for the spiritual and is dead in trespasses and sin, condemned already, under the penalty of sin, under the wrath of God, and hell-bound by nature. The only sure cure for man's spiritual heart disease is the Gospel of Christ, indeed, the Christ of the Gospel. If you have never trusted Him, why not now repent of sin, look to Jesus in faith, call on His saving name, ask Him to come into your heart and make your home in Heaven sure.
