2 Corinthians 4:4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
Satan controls this world through blinding people’s minds. Because of Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden mankind is born with a sinful nature. This nature is selfish. It is void inside. Satan deceives man by tempting him to fulfill his lusts in an attempt to fill the void in his heart. This void is a longing to be loved, accepted, valued, and to have a purpose. People put demands on other people to make them happy and fill this void. Unfortunately, the people who have the demand on them to make you happy, are looking to you or someone else, or something else, to make them happy. Everyone will eventually disappoint you and fall short of your expectation. The result is offense, hurt, disappointment, anger, strife, oppression, etc. Satan is the one that keeps people looking to this world to find their happiness. All they find is disappointment and sorrow.
The answer to life is the light of the gospel, the truth that God loves you. He demonstrated His great love for you by sending Jesus to die on the cross and pay the debt for your sin. Jesus reconciled you back to God. When you believe this gospel God gives you a new spirit and a new heart. His Holy Spirit comes inside of you and fills this void to be loved. As you get to know Him He reveals your identity in Christ, your purpose in Christ and a glorious inheritance He has for you in Christ. Without Jesus, you are condemned to a life of continual disappointment and frustration. No one can fill the void in your heart. No person can, no amount of money can, and no amount of power and influence can. You are damn to a life of disappointment. The good news is you can be reconciled to your God and His great love for you can fill your void. With Jesus living inside of you, life is awesome. The more you get to know Him the better life becomes. You can know Him by His Spirit that lives inside of you. He has a wonderful and great plan for your life. It is better than you could ever imagine. I know that I could never have imagined my life would have turned out so wonderful and I’m still just getting started. Just think about the potential of having God living inside of you. All things are now possible for you. He is amazing and He loves you and would never harm you and He never disappoints you. He is everything to me.
