The Gospel Entrusted To Us


"Although I am less than the least of all God's people, this grace was given to me: to preach the gospel among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. 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" (Eph.3:8-10).

Just one last tidbit... We are the stewards of the mystery of God. But even more than this, the gospel has been entrusted to us. The responsibility regarding the gospel of Christ has fallen on us and we are to live this mystery out in our lives, as we eagerly anticipate with certainty, our hope of glory. In today's verses, Paul explains that this great mystery, this grace, was given to him to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ... He was given the responsibility to make plain the administration of this mystery which for ages was kept hidden in God... With the cat out of the bag, so to speak, what was once a mystery can now have a cataclysmic witness, as the manifold wisdom of God should be made known even to the rulers and authorities in heavenly places... Paul felt that the stewardship of the great mystery was his, and was to be passed on through the gospel of Christ. When the Olympic flame makes its way from place to place, the torch is passed from one runner another as a relay. Paul has passed to torch to us. The stewardship of the mystery is ours to be passed on to others. Are we showing others the riches and glory of the mystery? By our words and works, are we letting people know that Christ is in us and that we have the hope of glory? It should be our great honor and responsibility to share what was once a great mystery with others... Christ in me... Glory forever...

Have a wonderful day... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
