There are some mysteries intended for you to solve, but the mystery of Jesus isn’t one of them. The Apostle Paul says in Colossians 1:27, “God has chosen to make known...the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” God has made known this mystery.

 

Before this verse, Paul talked about his role as a servant who presents the word of God in fullness. Why this is important is because even though Paul is the one sharing, since it is the word of God, it is actually God who is revealing this truth through Paul to those at Colossae.

 

Our human minds can’t discover this on our own. It’s not like an escape room that if given enough clues you’ll be able to crack the code or if given enough hints, you’ll be able to solve your crossword – this is a mystery that we don’t solve, but that God reveals. And what’s also amazing about this mystery is that it’s been kept hidden for ages and generation, and now not only has it been disclosed to God’s people, Israel, but also to the Gentiles, which is what most of Colossae consists of and I imagine is what most of your church is and most of your non-Christians are - non-Jews.

 

Only God could draw this up, be thankful He reveals and we receive.
