2 Corinthians 4:4 – EASY – Those people do not accept God’s good news. The god of this world has confused their minds. They cannot see the light that the good news brings. That message teaches about the great power of Christ, who shows us exactly what God is like.
2 Corinthians 4:4 – NLT – Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4 – AMP – Among them the god of this world [Satan] has blinded the minds of the unbelieving to prevent them from seeing the illuminating light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4 – NKJV – 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.
2 Corinthians 4:4 in Yoruba
II. Kor 4:4 YBCV
Ninu awọn ẹniti ọlọrun aiye yi ti sọ ọkàn awọn ti kò gbagbọ́ di afọju, ki imọlẹ ihinrere Kristi ti o logo, ẹniti iṣe aworan Ọlọrun, ki o máṣe mọlẹ ninu wọn.
Key: As Believers, we must be patient when witnessing to an unbeliever and keep praying for them that God touches their hearts and open their eyes. We should not be discouraged when the Gospel is repelled; it’s because the god of this world has blinded those who are yet to be saved.
However, the good news is when they eventually turn to God their veil is removed and they will be able to see the glorious light of the Gospel. [One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!”John 9:25b NIV].
Action: Pray for unbelievers around you that their hearts not be hardened to the Gospel of Christ.
