To keep them from seeing

“The god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers to keep them from seeing. . .the glory of Christ.”  (2 Corinthians 4:4)  What the enemy does not want us to see is the GLORY of Christ.  In spite of the evidence, many do not.  The disciples didn’t (in the gospels).  They watched the feeding of the 5000 and soon after were afraid as they observed Him walking on water. (Mark 6)  They had no “insight” says Mark.  No adequate concept of His identity and power.  Do you SEE His glory?  Do you regularly lift your eyes from your “stuff and struggles” to see the Lord “high and lifted up”(Isaiah 6)?  Has the radiant Christ become your vision? It is at the level of imagination/conviction that we  grasp the beauty and competence and reality of Christ.  As we “behold” His glory we are “transformed by it” (2 Corinthians 3:18)  There is something very powerful here.  Something that the enemy does not want us to see.  Praying for you, dear friends.  See you tomorrow!  Don
