colossians–day 9

“To them [saints], God CHOSE to make known how GREAT among the Gentiles are the RICHES of the GLORY of this mystery, which is CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory.”

I am drawn to worship Christ when reading Paul’s beautiful description of the Gospel in 1:27. “Christ in you” is his perfectly simple explanation of the wonderful good news. God was pleased to reveal to me the abundant riches, beauty, majesty, and depths of the glory of this mystery: Jesus Christ, the Sinless Savior, dying the most brutal of deaths, then raising to life to offer His perfect righteousness to me, a wretched sinner. What a beautifully glorious mystery…”Christ in you, the hope of glory” is the best of news, the Gospel.

We worship you, Lord.
