"To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."
Christians live open secrets. On the outside we still look like everybody else. On the inside, we are both the same as we always were, and yet also completely different. We have our old sinful nature and our new righteous one. We are still who we are, but we also have God Himself in us.
Jesus has revealed Himself to us through His Word. Through the Spirit we are born again. Our hearts worship and serve Him gladly. He is real. He is alive. He is everything and more. Our open secret is Christ in us, the hope of glory in this life and the next. We know the secret place where all beauty, all joy, all love, and all treasure dwell – in the Person of Jesus Christ. It’s the secret we long for the whole world to know right along with us.
We see sin, misery, sickness, and death everywhere in this world. It pains us because we know the solution to it all. We wish we could pull back the curtain so others could see Jesus for themselves and know Him in all His glory. Share your “secret” with those God brings into your life today.
CHRISTIANS HAVE NO ORDINARY MOMENTS. CHRIST NOW LIVES IN US! WHAT IS "ORDINARY" ABOUT THAT?
