Jesus Christ–the “Mystery” revealed!
Scripture reading for September 26th: Isaiah 3-6; 1st Timothy 3
Key Scriptures: 1st Timothy 3:16 “Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: ‘He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.'”
Paul was writing to encourage his young “son” in the faith to choose godly leaders in Christ’s Church. There were numerous qualifications involving personal character and demonstrated ability and faithfulness that Paul had laid out. In summary, Paul stated it was all about a relationship with Jesus Christ, Son of God and raised from the dead. In Christ, this mystery was fully revealed to all who would believe.
Isaiah 6:1-3 “In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above Him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; the who earth is full of His glory!””
Prayer: Lord, may I continue to grow in godliness through a deeper relationship and walk with my Lord Jesus Christ, the “Holy, Holy, Holy One.” May His Glory fill the earth! Amen.
