The Eclipsed Heart

II CORINTHIANS 4:3–4-- "But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 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."

The moon has no glory of its own; it shines only with the sun’s radiance. When the moon falls behind earth’s shadow, sunlight is blocked and reflected loveliness is darkened.

Human beings once shone with God’s glory, but it was lost through sin. Now our hope is to reflect the glory of Christ.

However, the prince of darkness desires to impose his shadow over our hearts so that we do not sparkle with God’s “Sonlight.” Through its own motion the moon slips into the massive shadow of earth, an eclipse. Likewise, our own actions bring us into the state of the eclipsed, darkened heart, but we can avoid this by deciding to walk in the light.

The more darkness one chooses, the more darkness one has. Those who choose not to see will not see. The heart that selects the veil gets the veil.

Move out of the shadows of unbelief and into God’s glorious light revealed in Jesus Christ!
