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.”

The invisible, inconceivable, triune Godhead – Three in One – is the greatest mystery of all. Our 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 in a spiritual way, and I believe this is just as real. Thanks to the Holy Spirit human beings are part of God’s mysterious ways.

We can be sidetracked by current events. All through our daily battles it is important to remember that God is with us. It may be tempting to check out – heaven is a wonderful place – 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.

Indeed, the arrival of God’s Son has melted the ice. As a result hope dawns in human hearts, and if there is one thing this broken world needs, it is hope. Our human spirits thrive on hope and we can be certain that the Lord won’t give up on us.

God has an exceptional future prepared for this universe. Glorious things are just around the corner. Our present days may be difficult but Christ in us, the hope of glory, keeps us afloat.
