Misdirected Anger

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.'” (John 14:6 NASB)

“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”                                          (2 Corinthians 4:3-4NASB) 


We are supposed to hate sin. Wether seen in ourselves or in someone else, it is part of our new nature, we hate sin. Especially when seen in others. When we see it as that bad in ourselves we come to true repentance and a better understanding of faith. There is a very important reason we must learn to properly hate.

They are perishing because Satan has blinded the minds of those who do not believe that Jesus is the only way to the Father. The Enemy of God prevents them from seeing the “Light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.”  Sad, but true. You don’t believe, you perish! But those who do believe are here to make a difference, by giving the blind something to see.

Most adults have heard the story about the baby in the manger who grew-up to be amazing. They have heard of the “Golden Rule” and all that other stuff. Maybe “Seeing is Believing” is the only way a blind mind can believe. We can show them by living in Christ’s Light. It is that state of being where you’re “living right.” The way we know we should be living, in Christ.

“I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, SO THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE THAT YOU SENT ME.” (John 17:20-21NASB) It seems we can make a difference.

Redirect that hate toward the one who has blinded the minds of unbelievers to the gospel. Take that same emotion to war with you. First against your own sin and against God’s enemy. Now pray that God’s work in you will give the world something to believe.
