God is mysterious. So are His children, the mystery being: frail human beings carry precious cargo. They carry the Son of God inside their hearts. Wherever they go they bring the blessing of Christ.
How can this be? That, my friend, is the same question Mary asked angel Gabriel when he brought the news to her that she will be pregnant with Christ. And his answer was (Luke 1:35):
“The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.'”
Mary was the first person who carried the Son of God inside of her – albeit in a physical way. Children of God carry the Son of God in their hearts, which is just as real.
Human beings become part of God’s mystery. The Holy Spirit made this possible. And through the arrival of God’s Son in the hearts of human beings hope has arrived, and if there’s one thing this broken world needs, it’s hope!
Here is the hope God instills: He has a good future prepared for this universe and mankind is part of it. When Paul writes in his letter to the Colossians that glorious things are awaiting, then he means just that: the world to come is going to be very good.
We need to remember that as we are going through our daily battles. Our human spirits thrive on hope.
