Why Could We Appreciate God?

"The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ" (2 Cor 4:4-6, NIV) is also becoming my favorite.

I realize that on my own I could not remove the veil on my eyes (nor on the eyes of others), so I could really see the glory of Christ -- the Beauty and Majesty of God. Thus, the material things in the world, or whatever things that would appeal to our physical senses (or human reason) would attract us more.

It is God Himself, who let the light to shine in the darkness in the beginning, could make our spiritual blind eyes perceive "the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ"!

Jesus Christ Himself said in John 17 in His prayer, that He would make known the Father and would continue to make Him known to the elect.

What a great a wonderful privilege if God would make His Light shine in your heart -- to really be captivated of His Glory!

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
