Tom began the message speaking to spiritual blindness that is present for some people. From Luke 1:78, 79 - we look for guidance on our path to peace. From Jeremiah 5:21 - there are foolish people with eyes that cannot see and ears that do not hear. Some are not able to get the gospel of God's truth, and there are some who just ignore it saying, "It's not my message so why should I listen?" God knew that the Jews would reject Jesus because His message was contrary to their ideas of what they expected from the Messiah. From John 12:40, 41 - God blinded their eyes so they couldn't accept it. There are those who can't or won't accept it. From 2 Corinthians 4:4 - Satan can also close our eyes so we don't see God. Why would anyone want to be exposed as a sinner? People loved the darkness from John 3:19-21. Many will ignore the truth because it can't be seen or known. God helps us to see the light. Darkness is associated with sin, rebellion and disobedience. Look for the Light of the World!
