3And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:3 – 6)
As believers, we need to demonstrate love for those around us who have not experienced God’s glory in the person of His son Jesus Christ. The passage above paints a clear contrast between those who have not seen the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ and those who have. The more we learn about God’s glory the greater our desire should be for others to experience His glory, and our prayers should reflect this desire. We cannot be selfish in this regard.
Please prayerfully reflect on the Bible verses above.
- Do you have a strong desire to see others experience God’s glory?
- Who specifically can you pray for today that needs to “see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ”?
