But if the gospel be hidden, it is from those who are lost. In whom the god of this world (the devil) hath blinded the minds of them who believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them (2 Corinthians 4:3-4). From this scripture we see why some people refuse to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, who God sent according to John 3:16-17 because of His love for us. Jesus confirms this in John 14:6, He is the way, the truth and the life; no one goes to God except through Him.
What is so hard to believe? Why is it so hard to believe? No other person has done the things that Jesus has done. No one walked and talked like Jesus did. Above all no one ever died on a cross for us except Him. Dont allow your mind to be blinded to the truth of Jesus Christ who is our way out of darkness. Remove the veil the devil has put over your face that Jesus has done away with and receive with meekness the engrafted word which is able to save your souls, be done with all filthiness and overflowing wickedness as James 1:21 points out.
“What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?” Job 15:14
We were all born in sin and shaped in iniquity as we see from Job 15:14; 25:4, Psalm 51:5, Romans 3:9; 6:23, and Galatians 3:22. So there is no doubt that we are all sinners in need of saving. John 3:16 tells us who God sent to save us, therefore there is no debate or confusion as to who the Savior is. Because of Jesus, we who are dead in trespasses and sins are made alive through Him as Ephesians 2:1-5 says,
“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins… God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)”
As Christians we have the privilege of being in the world but we are not of the world; as John 17:16-17 shows us, we are sanctified through God’s word, which is the truth. The truth is we are going to have tribulation in the world but we have to be cheerful because Jesus overcame the world as John 16:33 points out to us and Romans 8:37 tells us that because of Jesus we are more than conquerors.
Therefore if we do as Romans 12:1-2 tells us, we will, as Isaiah 40:31 says, “mount up on wings as eagles, walk and not faint, run and not be weary.” We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. So we should walk circumspectly not as fools, but as wise redeeming the time because the days are evil as Ephesians 5:15 tells us. We should walk with God’s help in His light (Ephesians 5:8), love (Ephesians 5:2), in Spirit (Galatians 5:25), in truth (3 John 4) and in Christ (Colossians 2:6).
How is your walk as a Christian? Why aren’t you following Christ? How shall you escape if you neglect so great a salvation(Heb. 2:3)? So today, if you hear His voice harden not your hearts (Heb. 3:7-12). Receive God’s love through His Son Jesus. Go to the top of this blog tp the salvation page and follow the instructions.
