The Mystery Of God

“This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.”

Ephesians 3:6 (NIV) 

All people share in the promise of God through Jesus. Galatians 3:28-29 assures us that, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” 

And what is this promise? It is the promise of eternal life, for Israel first and also for the Gentiles (Romans 1:16). As it says in 1 John 2:25, “And this is what he promised us—even eternal life.” 

How is this possible? By believing in Jesus. A stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the Gentiles! (1 Corinthians 1:23). 

Let us stand up for Jesus and proclaim him. 

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, please open doors for your people to walk through. Make straight their paths. Send more labourers into the harvest, for the harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few.

Amen
