Riches of Mystery

Colossians 1:27 Riches of Mystery

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.  Colossians 1:27  NIV

 

The owner of the company was a billionaire.  One day one of his workers came to tell him that he was going to quit and move closer to his family and friends.  He told him that the job was perfect, only that he felt he needed to move on.  The owner did not want to let him go so he told the young man to come around to his mansion to talk numbers.  The boy said that it wasn´t about the money either.  But the rich man said, “You can´t say that! I am sure we will find an amount that will make you want to stay.”  Has anyone ever offered us more than we can imagine?

The young man left that company without ever even knowing how much money the rich man would offer him.  But the turn of events also led him down a path which brought him closer to Christ.  A different fortune opened up for him that he never saw coming.  The Lord works in mysterious ways.  He is the greatest Mystery any human can seek to understand.  But the call is for us to seek out for ourselves what riches lie hidden in our God.  We may have to wait for our mansion, but who cares?  Shall we seek to become wealthier than the kings of the earth and discover the riches found only in knowing Jesus Christ our Savior and Helper in all things?

 

Dear Lord,

Open our eyes to see that nothing can compare with knowing You!  Overwhelm us with the riches found in You, we pray!

Amen
