2 Corinthians 4:1-7, ESV
A Devastating Diagnosis
People on their way to hell are blind to what they most need to see.
Unbelievers are not neutral toward Jesus; they have been spiritually blinded by Satan.
Satan works to blind unbelievers in order to keep them from seeing the worth of Jesus.
Christian ministry is not about those who minister but about proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord.
Unbelievers need to hear about Jesus and they need light to overcome the darkness.
The same God who spoke the universe and light itself into existence is the one who overcomes the blinding work of Satan to cause people to see and know the greatness of Jesus Christ.
Seeing Jesus as glorious is treasure.
Weak people possessing such treasure glorifies God by showing that the Satan-defeating power is of God not us.
God’s Work God’s Way
God uses people to open blind eyes and free lost people from Satan!
Understanding that God saves frees us from man-centered methodology and God-dishonoring trickery.
“God did it!” is our anthem!
