PASSAGE: II Cor. 4:4-6 ~~ "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. For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, & ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. For 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 this glory of God in the face of Christ."
LESSON LEARNED: The news has been filled w/the remarkable rescue of the 33 Chilean miners. What an incredible story! Because they have been trapped in nearly complete darkness for the last 69-70 days, they are all coming up w/dark sun-glasses on to shield their eyes from the brightness of sunlight.
I wonder...will any of them recognize the spiritual parallel of their story?
All of us who now have Jesus Christ as our Savior & Lord have been brought up out of an eternal pit of darkness. Only we didn't have to wear sun-glasses to shield our eyes from the SONlight...in our cases, the veil of darkness of LIFTED & NOW we SEE!!
~~II Sam. 22:29 ~ "You are my lamp O LORD; the LORD turns my darkness into light." Amen & AMEN!!!
