9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery,
which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God,
who created all things by Jesus Christ:
10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places
might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
LIGHT from the WORD.
Andrew Murray once wrote of humility,
"Men sometimes speak as if humility and meekness would rob us of
what is noble and bold and manlike.
O that all would believe that this (meekness) is the nobility of the
kingdom of heaven, that this is the royal spirit that the King of heaven
displayed, that this is Godlike, to humble oneself, to become the
servant of all!”
THIS...this is true meekness displayed
He Who created all things by the power of simply speaking His Word is
"wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger!" (Lk 2:12)
Mistake not humility for fearfulness, nor meekness for weakness!
The manger scene certainly represents innocence and purity!
But, it also represents POWER under CONTROL!
For, the babe in the manger is:
"...the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace!"
The Almighty Omnipotent Holy and Majestic King of eternity restrained His power
to be found "lying in a manger." (Luke 2:12)
The Omniscient God restrained His power to be "crucified" for our sins. (John 19:18)
Is this not the "fellowship of the mystery?"
For, today, this mystery is "known by the church,"
and is "the manifold wisdom of God!"
OH! The “eternal purpose” of the mystery!
The restraint of God’s power to exhibit His love!
GOD in a manger, come to DIE for OUR sin!!
This Christmas, TELL the MYSTERY!!
