Psalm 82:5 (NLT)
But these oppressors know nothing; they are so ignorant! And because they are in darkness, the whole world is shaken to the core.

The world has had wicked people and oppressors since the beginning of time. The Bible says they know nothing. They are ignorant of the things of God because they don’t know Him and reject Him. Because they reject God, they reject and oppress His people too, all of us. Furthermore, because they don’t have God, they walk in darkness. God is the truth and the light of the world. Anybody who walks without Him walks in darkness. It is because there are wicked people in the earth walking in the lack of knowledge of God that “the foundations of the earth are out of course” (King James Version of the verse above).

One of our responsibilities as Christians is to pray for those in authority—even for the wicked and oppressors—so they receive the light of the world, Jesus. However, it is every person’s choice to accept Christ. Every person has free will to accept Him or not.

Our job is to pray for the light and to be a light to the world as representatives of Christ. Let’s not forget the workplace is part of the world we can be a light to.
