Journey Through Ephesians, #9
God gives us wisdom for a purpose. Read Ephesians 3:1-10.
For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles- if indeed you have heard of the stewardship of God’s grace which was given to me for you; that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit; to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel, of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of God’s grace which was given to me according to the working of His power. To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things; so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 3:1-10 NASB
God gave Paul wisdom. He didn’t give him wisdom just so Paul could keep that to himself. God gave him wisdom so that he can share what he has learned with others that he is around. God never gives us anything that we are expected to keep to ourselves. Everything God allows us to have is something that we should be sharing and using to demonstrate and tell of God’s glory to others.
When we look around at all of the wonderful blessings God has allowed us to have, how are we sharing those with others? How are we using them to tell of his amazing glory?
