Mystery No More

Sometimes we act as if serving Jesus Christ was such a mystery. We make a mystery of the Lord’s will. We make a mystery of the Spirit’s leading. We make a mystery of the work of the Church in the world. But while these were all mysteries in the old world before Jesus came to Earth, none of them are mysteries now.

         We have the privilege of being in Christ, where the mysteries of God’s work in the world are revealed. It is true that we do not know the future in detail and in that sense there is some mystery. But we do know that our Father has sent His Son and His Spirit to dwell with us always. We do know that we are welcome in His presence and that all fear of His wrath is removed in the perfect work of Jesus. He loves us because He loves His Son and we are in Him. His love towards is mystery no more.
