“That by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief.  By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ” (Ephesians 3:3-4)

What we have been given is not some cleverly devised story, but the truth that has been given through revelation.  By the revelation of God, His mysteries are revealed.  Through the Word, His mysteries are revealed.  Come then into the mystery of God which has been revealed to You, and dwell with Him now and forever.  You have been redeemed by His provision and called for His purpose.

Lord, lead me where I need to go.  Lead through my rebellion and protestations so that I may be guided in Your goodness to see that in You is all hope and the glory of eternity.  Guide me, Lord, so that I may now and always look to You, the hope of all people, in the mystery of the revelation You have made before all people, in order see the salvation You have made possible for all.

Lord Jesus, through You alone is all hope and glory.  You have come so that all who believe might have life and have it abundantly.  Guide me, Lord, so that I may now and always walk humbly with You, my Lord and Master.  Teach me this day what You would have me know.  Walk me ever deeper in the mystery of the faith.  Lead me this day, my Savior, and share through me the truth of the gift of grace You have given for all, that others might believe and be saved.  Amen.
