Colossians 1:27: “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.”

God is mysterious. So are His children, frail human beings who 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 take part in God’s mystery. The Holy Spirit made this possible.

The dawning of human hearts through the arrival of God’s Son has melted the ice. Hope has arrived, and if there is one thing this broken world needs, it is hope. God has an exceptional future prepared for this universe, mankind included. Glorious things are just around the corner. Our future is going to be astonishing.

It may be tempting to check out in anticipation for the things to come, but why would we want to miss out on the extraordinary blessings of today? The wonder of God’s kingdom has already begun. The Son of God planted the seed and the tree has been growing exponentially.

We have a tendency to get sidetracked by current events. All through our daily battles it is important to remember that God is with us. Anchored in the mystery of the invisible, inconceivable triune Godhead – Three in One, our human spirits thrive on hope. We can be hopeful because God has not given up on us. Daily, we are on His mind because He loves us and this, my friend, is the greatest mystery of all.
