Ephesians 3:4 – “when you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ.”
The mystery Paul was talking about here was the fact that God opened His Gospel and kingdom to Gentiles (as discussed yesterday). However, Paul is making it clear that his words, written with the help of the Holy Spirit, are an insight into the mystery of Christ.
How would my REAP change if I perceived it this way? Not just a spiritual discipline, but sitting before God’s Word, with the help of the Spirit, to gain an insight into the mystery of Christ! Not a chore, but learning about one of the deepest and most profound mysteries in all of Creation is made open to all of us with the flick of a page.
Lord, stoke my fire for Your Word and Your truth. Help me to be someone who is rooted in Your truth and in an understanding of who You are. Holy Spirit, help me to see clearly. Amen.
