“By revelation there was made known to me the mystery…” Ephesians 3:3. Paul was given special insight that he might communicate God’s purpose to us all. But was it to stop there? Yes and no! Certainly Paul was given sum of God’s truth, but we receive that truth by personal “revelation” ourselves. We’ll never “get it” without the Holy Spirit’s help in opening our heart and mind to “…all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding.”
We need to pursue truth by investing personal time with God. Only then will He reveal “…God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom an knowledge.” Colossians 2:2-3.
