Mystery
It intrigues us, doesn’t it? We want to consider, ponder, investigate, and discover. Scripture uses the word a number of times. Intriguing.
There is the mystery of 1 Corinthians 15:51f, regarding the transformation of our lowly bodies on the Last Day.
There is the mystery of Romans 11:25ff, regarding the past hardening of Jews and the future “softening” of many.
Additionally, there is the Mystery of the Incarnation, the Mystery of the Atonement, the Mystery of the Resurrection. All of these could be considered and pondered for a life time.
Paul refers to another mystery in the Ephesians reading. He says it remained unknown through man’s previous speculation but is now known through God’s revelation. Are you intrigued? What is this mystery?
If the Holy Spirit led Paul to wrap this truth in the irresistible intrigue of a mystery, then we shouldn’t quickly dismiss it, but rather consider, ponder, investigate and discover the blessing within.
How is this mystery a blessing to you?
