The Mystery of Christ

What’s your favorite movie with a surprising twist at the end?

Read Ephesians 3:1-13

In this case, the word “mystery” doesn’t mean something that no one knows. “Mystery” means something once unknown that is now revealed. According to verse 6, what mystery has been revealed to Paul?

Why do you think Paul was so compelled by this that he would devote his life to making it known even if it caused him suffering?

According to verse 10, the unified Church displays God’s power over the spiritual powers of evil. How does a multiethnic Church united under Christ reveal God’s victory over the “rulers and authorities” that would keep the world divided?

How might we experience opposition by taking up the same gospel mission as Paul, proclaiming that Jesus is bringing all things together?

Who could you share the good news of Jesus with this week?

Pray that we would have confidence to boldly proclaim the good news of Jesus. Pray for our fellow believers and missionaries around the world who are experiencing suffering for their faith on a consistent basis.
