The problem with living in spiritual darkness is that a lost soul does not know their predicament. Only by the light of faith can a soul see they were in spiritual captivity.
“Oh, Lord, only by the power of Your Word can a soul escape the clutches of spiritual darkness. Encourage me today to never give up sharing the knowledge of truth with all people you place in my life. Open my eyes to the spiritual condition of lost souls. Amen.”
“Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their sense and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.” (2 Timothy 2:25-26)
