“This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it’s out in the open. God wanted everyone, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. That is the substance of our Message.” (Colossians 1:26-27, MSG)
I love today’s passage! It states that God wants you to know the message inside and out that God is for you. How? By actually placing Christ within you! Do you find that amazing? I sure do!
This knowledge carries with it a responsibility, and I want you to think of that as a response-ability. God wants you to share this message so you can share in His glory. It’s that simple.
God wants to save you. When you accept Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life, He comes to live within you. This is how you can come to know this good news inside and out. If you want to know more, please let me know. I’d love to talk and pray with you; my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayer: Dear Lord, I want to know you inside and out, and realize you start this process by coming into my heart. I welcome you and thank you. Help me to share this message with others so I may share in your glory. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
