Meditation: The mysterious plan of God was finally revealed in the New Testament.
This mystery is that through the gospel, the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 3:6
Even a Gentile girl from Atlanta? How did God make this possible?
In Jesus and through faith in Him, we may approach God with freedom and confidence. Ephesians 3:12
God’s forgiveness through Jesus is an example:
His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, Ephesians 3:10
To the very ones we are at war with:
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12
The revelation of this mystery is bigger than me. It has an eternal purpose that God accomplished in Jesus the Messiah. I am only one signpost clearly pointing to the wisdom of God.
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19
Fill us with Your love, LORD.
