6/3/17 The Mystery Of God Revealed To Us By His Son

“You know that God gave me His grace on your behalf, that I might be sent as an apostle to the Gentiles, to reveal to you the mystery that He revealed to me.  I have written to you before of this mystery, so that you could understand what God revealed to me on your behalf.  Before Jesus came, this mystery was still unknown to the human race, but Jesus came to teach us about the true nature of God, and His desire for His children.  Now, through the Holy Spirit, the message is revealed to His apostles and prophets so that Gentiles and Jews can be brought into the family of God together, as one in Jesus, sharing in the promised inheritance of the Kingdom of Heaven through the spreading of Jesus’ message of God’s love and forgiveness for His people.  It is for this purpose that I became the apostle to the Gentiles, and have been travelling all over Asia sharing the wonderful news of Jesus’ sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins.  And I have been able to do this only through the gift of God’s grace to me and to all those who would come to Him, through the power of His Holy Spirit.”
