“Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:4 NLT
What is my mindset? Do I begin with God and his rights and goals? Or do I begin with myself and my rights and wishes? When I live my life from my desires or wishes or rights or goals or values, I am reverting back to the blindly way I thought before believing in Christ. How unnatural now that I am his child. He has made me see the glorious light of his message and work. I now understand this message about the glory of Christ.
“Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind (mana`o).’” Matthew 22:37
Lord, you have made me see. The blindness is gone and I live with new understanding. May your desires and rights drive me through this day.
