My quite time this morning
“The Hope Of Glory”
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
- What is hope of glory?
- Who has God chosen to inherit his riches?
- Why it was made know to the Gentiles?
“God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
Let’s start by clarifying that the apostle Paul is writing to believers in Jesus Christ—the “you” whom he addresses. He calls them “the Lord’s people” in the previous verse (Colossians 1:26).
The “Gentiles” are non-Jewish people. A “mystery” in the New Testament is simply something that was hidden in times past but has now been revealed by God. The former mystery, now understood, is that Christ in us is the hope of our future glory.
Christ’s presence in us is the hope of glory, and this truth is full of “glorious riches”. Our once dead, darkened spirits are made alive. Christ is in our hearts, and we know that there is life beyond this earthly existence—a life that will be glorious beyond all imagination.
Be reminded that Christ is your hope today
Dear heavenly Father, I begin this day with a rousing “Amen!” to this prayer Paul prayed for his dear friends in Ephesus.
Open the eyes of my heart that I might see more of your beauty, glory, and grace. For the better I know you, the less I stay preoccupied with me. Indeed, the more robust my relationship is with you—the deeper my joy is, the quicker my repentances come, and the fewer my whines are.
Yes, Father, flood my heart with insight into the hope that you only can give.Thank you for saving our souls to such peace, encouragement, and assurance.
You will complete the good work you began in us.
In Jesus mighty name Amen
