The greatest mystery of humanity is God’s existence. Throughout the ages, humans struggle with accepting the Lord as the creator and ultimate authority over the universe. In fact, many people collide with the Father’s truth. They create absurd concepts anchored in self-centered intellect trying to disprove God’s Living Spirit.
For example, Darwinism is a popular choice that may people take as the reason for our existence. This theory of evolution captures the minds of unstable souls leading to a belief of uncertainty. Charles Darwin believed creation came from random chance and mutations. Here he tries to convince others God doesn’t exist because everything in the universe is aimless without purpose.
The most compelling evidence of God’s presence is experiencing the Holy Spirit. No mystery lies behind the Lord’s breath of life because His Son Jesus Christ is the key to God’s wisdom. Remember, the Messiah is God’s kingdom and solves the debate over creation.
In my dark days, the confusion over God’s truth kept His word mystery. I lived life my way, and the road of self-destruction engulfed my spirit. My outlook on existence involved constant sinning and unnecessary suffering. Understanding a spiritual life was nil.
Under those circumstances, the Lord stayed silent. He knew the precise time when I became ready to hear His voice. It took physical, mental and spiritual bankruptcy to bring me to His doorstep. I reached the point of desperation, hopelessness and then God stepped in and comforted me with His compassion.
As soon as He called on me, everything changed.
The Lord saved my life, introduced me to Christ and removed the mystery of His kingdom. I’m grateful for His gift of salvation.
It’s in Christ we discover God. Until one turns away from sin and follows Christ as God’s way, then eternal life stays a mystery. To unveil God’s wisdom comes from reliance on Christ without reservations. We must concede to our innermost selves Christ as God’s salvation.
Once you find Christ, then the resolution to God’s mystery fades away, and access to spiritual knowledge with a power greater than temptation emerges. This courage to turn away from sin isn’t found within ourselves. Because it’s important to realize without Jesus, no one can live free from the bondage of self.
In the Epistle of Paul to the Colossians, it gives the best description of unlocking the mystery of God. Apostle Paul shares this with us.
“The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them, God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:26-27 NKJV)
Given these points, it leaves no doubt God placed Christ as the one who solves the riddle of His sovereignty. Through God’s grace, our spiritual understanding increases and we find His the truth.
