Blinded From the Heavenly Light

text size A A A

Are you consumed with all kinds of earth stuff and blinded from what matters most? Many times we are blinded by the lights of making money, having fun, important relationships, busy schedules, even religious activity.

We're blinded from heavenly light.

The Word of God from 2 Corinthians 4:4 is a very revealing statement from God's perspective. "The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God." This means that there is a heavenly light that God wants you to see. It's the good news of the glory of Christ.

The good news is that Jesus loves you very much. He proved it by paying the sin penalty that you deserved when He died on the cross. He demonstrated His unbeatable power when He blew the doors off of His grave and rose from the dead, and He's all the love and all the peace you've been looking for all these years.

There's a problem with God's light. The earth lights blind us to the heavenly light. When that happens to people spiritually, they can literally miss Jesus, miss God's love, and miss heaven forever. This says that the god of this world, the Devil, has blinded our minds. We're surrounded by a lot of earth lights that blind us to the much brighter light of God. We just keep ignoring Jesus, postponing Jesus, or forgetting Jesus.

The Devil, whose whole goal is to destroy you, will use anything or anyone he can to keep you from seeing and following Jesus. His intention is to block your view of the real light until you pass the point of no return. Maybe today, maybe this very moment, the light is breaking through.

For this moment, God has taken you away from the blinding light of all that earth stuff and all those earth people, so you can take one clear look at the light of Jesus Christ. Now in the words of the Bible, "Seek the Lord while He may be found" (Isaiah 55:6).
