THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE EPHESIANS

CHAPTER 3


WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST

WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST STUDY ON WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST QUESTION WITH WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST ANSWER AND WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST MESSAGE
 

          Great to have you back again here at Daily Bread! Let me remind you where we were in our study of this letter from Paul to the Ephesians and to the faithful in Christ. Our author, the Apostle Paul, as you know, is very passionate about his writings. Although he wrote many of his epistles from prison, from his view, he was writing to people who were (are) imprisoned by the world. Notice in the first line of this chapter, whose prisoner Paul chooses to be. He has just explained to us how God, through the New Testament and the blood of Christ, has provided all people equal hope of eternal life. In this chapter, he refers to this as the mystery of Christ.

You may want to refresh your memory abut the "mystery" in CHRISTIAN GUIDELINES, the last chapter Daily Bread study from The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans.

         Paul becomes so passionate about his writing at times, that if you donít follow his words extremely carefully, you can get lost and forget from the time you begin reading a sentence until the time you finish it, what he was talking about at the beginning. Because of this, Iím going to convey this particular chapter in a stanza format to make it easier to follow.


For this reason, I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
If you have heard of the providence of the grace of God
Which is given to me to help you,
How that by revelation, He made known to me the mystery
(as I wrote before in few words, by which, when your read,
You may understand my knowledge in the secret of Christ),
Which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men,
As it is now revealed to His holy Apostles and Prophets by the Spirit,
That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs
And of the same body (united with Christ)
And partakers of His promise in Christ by the Gospel
Of which I was made a minister,
According to the gift of the grace of God
Given to me by the actual working of His power.

WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST LESSON WITH WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST EXPLANATION

          What in the world is he talking about? Well, heís saying that God showed him the mystery of eternal life for all who choose, so he could reveal it to the Gentiles, because in the past, they werenít included in it, but by the grace of God, He has made it available to everyone, and Paul was appointed to bring the Good News of this gift to the Gentiles. Letís read on.


To me, who is less than the least of all saints is this grace given
That I should preach among the Gentiles about the unsearchable riches of Christ,
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery,
Which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God,
Who created all things by Jesus Christ,
To the intent that now,
To the principalities and powers in heavenly places
Might be known by the church
The complete wisdom of God,
According to the eternal purpose which He planned in Christ Jesus our Lord
In whom we have boldness and access
With confidence by the faith of Him.
 

          There are a few things to notice in this sentence. First, remember that the unreachable riches of Christ are those spiritual gifts that Paul talked about in the first two chapters of this letter. Next, in order for you to understand what principalities and powers in heavenly places are, see these Daily Bread Bible Studies ...  Colossians, Chapter 1 - CHRIST FIRST, Colossians, Chapter 2 - FALSE PHILOSOPHY, and Titus, Chapter 3 FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD.

          You see, we know about the mystery of Jesus Christ, which is everlasting life through grace and faith, but wayyyyy back in the beginning, before the Great Flood, Jesus was not known in the flesh yet. So Paul is saying, God has known since the beginning, His plan, to extend His gift (the fellowship of the mystery, or in other words, the sharing of eternal life) to those who have faith in Him. Donít forget, those angels (principalities and powers) were heavenly beings, spiritual, all their needs were met, living to serve God. And they chose evil instead of faith. Now, Jesus has been here, and has revealed the mystery of God, and the complete (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit), wisdom of God to the church, and we, knowing the truth, have the choice of whether we fall like the fallen angels or choose faith in His plan.

WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST INFORMATION WITH WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST MEANING


Therefore I hope that you grow confident instead of weak
at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
For this reason, I bow my knees
To the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named,
That He would grant you,
According to the riches of His glory
(remember, those are your spiritual blessings Paul mentions again)
To be strengthened with might
By His Spirit in the inner man,
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by Faith,
That you, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to understand with all saints
What is the breadth and length, and depth and height
And to know the love of Christ,
Which passes all knowledge,
That you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think
According to the power (the holy spirit) that works in us,
To Him be glory in the church
By Christ Jesus throughout all ages,
World without end.
Amen
 

          Well, I donít know about you, but I feel very overwhelmed that Paul prayed this for me. What if someone you knew personally prayed this for you? Wouldnít you feel honored beyond measure? Go ahead and read that part again, but a little slower this time and let the meaning of these words fill your soul. Makes you just want to sigh deeply, like a baby does when itís sleeping and feels all the safety and comfort in the world. And thatís exactly what God wants you to feel, that youíre in the safety of His arms in the immeasurable love of Christ, and that just as Paul prayed, these things through the Holy Spirit will strengthen you.

          Be sure and come back soon, and weíll find out what Paul has to say next in his lovely letter to the Ephesians and us, right here in the next Daily Bread. Have a blessed and wonderful day in the comfort of your Fathers arms!
