June 28–Powerful Purpose…Magnificent Mystery Made Known!

My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding,

in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments.

Colossians 2:2-4

God uses the Apostle Paul as His vessel to reveal God’s own passionate, powerful purpose for all of us who have put our trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord:

  • God purposes us to be encouraged in heart—given strength, hope, confidence and courage at the very core of who we are, what we think and what we do
  • God purposes us to be united in love by the love of Christ—to truly belong to each other as God’s children, as brothers and sisters in faith, who will actively love, care, protect and support one another because of our oneness in Christ
  • God purposes us to have, and be eternally and outrageously blessed by, the full riches of complete understanding…by all the treasures of wisdom and knowledgefound in God’s revealed truth that was once kept as mystery:
  • Jesus Christ is the Living God in Human Form
  • Jesus died for us to Forgive our sins
  • Jesus rose from the dead to Conqueror death
  • Jesus will come again!
  • God purposes us to know and understand all this fully so that no one and nothing will deceive us. Not ever.

So! Be encouraged! Love powerfully and unselfishly! Be filled with God’s lavish gifts of understanding, wisdom and knowledge through the grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
