MONDAY 18TH OCTOBER, 2021
THEME: THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST
PASSAGE: EPHESIANS 3:18 – 21
MEMORY VERSE: Ephesians3:6“That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel.”
HYMN: MHB 503 (C.M.) – GOD moves in a mysterious way.
Talking about the mystery of Christ does not refer to anything “mysterious” in the person of Christ nor the union of the divine and human nature in Him; nor is anything difficult of apprehension in the work of the atonement. It simply means the hitherto concealed doctrine that through Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Gentiles were to enjoy the same privileges as the Jews, and that the plan of salvation was to be made equally free for all.
This great truth had been concealed or partially understood for a long time, and Paul says that he was appointed to make it known to the world.
Have you the key into this revealed mystery by accepting Jesus Christ into your life as Saviour and Lord? He is the Only One that can give lasting insight and solution to your life’s challenges.
Every bit of problem in life finds its final solution in the person and being of the Lord Jesus Himself. God has set His Son at the heart of all things. Therefore, the understanding of this great mystery is the key to the ultimate solutions for which men are seeking today. If we begin to understand what Christ is, who He is, what He does and how we can lay hold of Him, we will begin to see the solutions to these problems as they are, indeed, unfolding in many lives.
Solutions are coming into being as we grasp what Christ has made available to us. I know that sometimes we are so blinded by familiarity with these terms that we miss its impact. But I pray that God will open the eyes of your understanding, that you will see how fantastic this great mystery is and how important it is to understand it thoroughly, and to enter into it.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, unfold the mystery of Your Word to me and help me to always act according to Your commands in Jesus’ name.
