2 Corinthians 4:3-5 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. (5) For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.


Many times I have heard people talk of meeting a car and the bright lights of the car blinding them. That happens because the eyes have adjusted to the darkness and can't adjust to the light quickly enough.
Darkness is only an absence of light. For some time we have been aware of the darkness in the world. By that I mean entire regions who know nothing about Jesus. You can look at their living conditions and at their morality and know that it is truly darkness.

I am concerned that people's eyes are getting used to the darkness right here in the United States. It seems that everyone is supposed to be tolerant of everything but Christianity and high moral standards. Things that used to be shocking have gone from being tolerated to being embraced and now they are being forced on those who do not agree with them.

We have the Light. We have the knowledge of Jesus Christ. The only way we are ever going to drive away the darkness is to let our lights shine. One day Jesus is going to come back and they will be so used to the darkness that they will be blinded by His light and won't even be able to see Him.

Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
