Since the evil one cannot keep the Light of the Gospel out of the world, He works overtime making sure the Light doesn't get into the hearts and minds of those who do not yet believe. Unbelievers allow the darkness to rule in their hearts because they are more comfortable with the lie and they see the lie as more realistic and logical. Our commission as believers is to be
light in this dark world and pray that the Holy Spirit will prepare the hearts and minds of the unbelievers to receive and believe the truth of the Gospel.
Heavenly Father, we are aware of the work of the evil one in this world. But we know that You are greater and the truth of the Gospel is greater. Help us to be light to this dark world. Prepare the hearts and minds of those who are still prisoners of the darkness, so they will get a glimpse of the truth and turn from the darkness to the light. In Jesus' name.
Read 2 Corinthians 4:4
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." (NIV)
"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." (KJV)
