26 This great secret was hidden to the people of times past, but it is now made known to those who belong to Christ. 27 God wants these great riches of the hidden truth to be made known to the people who are not Jews. The secret is this: Christ in you brings hope of all the great things to come. 28 We preach Christ. We tell every man how he must live. We use wisdom in teaching every man. We do this so every man will be complete in Christ.
It’s so amazing that WE are the great mystery, the secret, the great riches. We are God’s gift to the world. The local church IS the hope of the world.
Are we acting like it? Do we live each day in the light of God’s intention for us? Do we (I) realize the weight and joy of this glory? (ASV translation says “Christ in you, the hope of glory”)
