2 Corinthians 4:3-4 GNB If the gospel we preach is hidden, it is hidden only from those who are being lost. They do not believe, because their minds have been kept in the dark by the evil god of this world. He keeps them from seeing the light shining on them, the light that comes from the Good News about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
God advertised Himself in Jesus. ‘The Image of the Father’ Declared and presented. Romans 3:25 God sacrificed Jesus on the altar of the world to clear that world of sin. Having faith in him sets us in the clear. God decided on this course of action in full view of the public–to set the world in the clear with himself through the sacrifice of Jesus, finally taking care of the sins he had so patiently endured.
Eternal Light colorfully displayed in Person for a short thirty-three years. Jesus Christ appeared on earth to shatter the build-up of gloom that existed in human hearts, to dispel the darkness of godlessness, and offer a Light-Way tp discovery of God and His will.
John 3:19 says “This is the crisis we’re in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God.” We can fall into the error of worshipping stuff rather than embracing the glorious Son of God. The choice is ours.
Joshua 24:15 “If you decide that it’s a bad thing to worship God, then choose a god you’d rather serve–and do it today. Choose one of the gods your ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods of the Amorites, on whose land you’re now living. As for me and my family, we’ll worship God.”
