The Mystery of Christ

The eternal purpose of the Lord Jesus for our existence is that we will experience the mystery of Christ as a particular member of the Body of Christ. The mystery of Jesus Christ, “which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit.” The only way the mystery will ever be revealed is by the Holy Spirit.

There is one thing that the Holy Spirit always says: Draw near. Draw near to the throne of grace. Draw near to mercy. Draw near to godly people.

Draw near to the Body of Christ. Instead of having fellowship with iniquity in the communion of demons (1 Corinthians 10:20), we need to experience the fellowship of the mystery in the Body of Christ.

This mystery is seen in the way God uses His people and His Church to reveal who He is in this world. This is the age of grace when God, through Christ, has made it possible for all to partake of His promise in the Gospel.
