The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. Colossians 1:27 MSG
There was a secret from heaven that God whispered into the ear of His Son. Angels longed to know what made Jesus’ face light up when His Father had told Him this secret. But the Son wouldn’t tell. He did tell our forefathers that there was a mystery to be revealed later. So all those who studied the Scriptures and all the angels were longing to find out the answer.
God revealed the answer through His Son. The secret is that the Son actually lives in us. Not just any angel but the Son of God. The Word made flesh, the exact image of the Father is within us. He who had compassion on the sick, He who went to dinner parties with the outcasts of the world, He who reconciled all of us to Him lives within me and you.
To me this means that if I let Him live and move in the home of my heart I’m going to have compassion on the sick, socialize with the outcasts of the world and my aim will be to reconcile people to Him by grace,gentleness, and wisdom when and only when they’re ready.
So now the angels’ faces are beaming. They have the answer to the mystery. It’s a beautiful, heavenly mystery that we hold in our hearts. He even lives in our hearts.
