"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." 2 Cor 4:4
We live in a world that is chalk full of distractions. Satan has really taken hold of us with them.
I find that the main ones are electronics: cell phones, iPads, video games, hd televisions, desktop computers, laptops, etc; and the list continues to grow.
Now these can be great for witnessing for the Lord but at the same time devastating to blinding us from true peace and joy through the Lord.
Back in the day, electronics were no where to be found. Our generation has lost the art of Bible reading, prayer, unhindered fellowship, etc. People do not want to go to church, they rather sit at home and watch it on TV if at all.
People need to be reminded of the powerful job that Satan has done to blind this world. He is the master deceiver and needs to be called out.
Let us hold down the fort as Christians by praying for the lost and using electronics to reach the lost but not neglecting the weightier issues of prayer, Bible reading, witnessing in person, etc.
Let's fight the good fight of faith beloved; souls are at stake.
"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses." 1 Tim 6:12
"Good people" don't get to Heaven, only saved ones do. Are you saved from your sins by true faith in Jesus Christ?
