I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that the may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.
Before we knew Christ as Saviour, we were governed by the power of sin and Satan. We lived in darkness. Only Jesus, The Light of the World can pierce this darkness, heal our blindness and release us from the power of sin. Sometimes we look at people and shake our heads. How can they act the way they do? If they are not Bible believing Christians, they are in the dark still. This is a truth to remember when we are praying for unsaved family and friends.
