God Gives Us Faith And Salvation (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)

Terrel Kesterson, January 28, 2018
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

One part of the Bible’s account of the Wise Men that always makes me sad is the reaction of the Jews in Jerusalem when the Wise Men ask, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?” (Mt. 2:2a). The Jews knew Micah’s prophecy that Christ would be born in Bethlehem (Mic. 5:2). Yet the Bible doesn’t mention any of the Jews going to Bethlehem to see if their promised Messiah had come. That is so very sad.
Paul begins our text, “But even if our Gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.”The “Gospel” is the Bible’s message of our salvation in Jesus. Paul says that the “Gospel is veiled ... to those who are perishing.” When the Bible talks about who Jesus Christ is and whatHe said and did and how we’re saved, it’s “veiled” to the unbelievers. They don’t ‘get it.’

2 Corinthians 4:3-4

3And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled in them that perish: 4in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn [upon them]. (ASV)
