The Allure of Mystery
There are things about God, Jesus, and salvation that the Bible simply describes as “mystery,” that is, hidden truth or a mystic secret.
This drives some people crazy. They want to understand all and be able to fully explain everything. Anything less causes frustration and angst.
For me, I relish the realization that some things of God are but a mystery. That draws me to him; it is an allure. Daily, I strive to unravel his mystery and know him more fully. This is as it should be.
To explore this mystery motif more fully, consider the following verses that evoke the mystery explanation:
- Job 11:7
- Romans 11:25 and 16:25
- 1 Corinthians 15:51
- Ephesians 1:9, 3:3-4, 3:6, 3:9, 5:32, and 6:19
- Colossians 1:26-27, 2:2, and 4:3
- 1 Timothy 3:16
- Revelations 10:7
May we embrace the mystery of God.
Peter DeHaan writes about biblical Christianity to confront status quo religion and live a life that matters. He seeks a fresh approach to following Jesus through the lens of Scripture, without the baggage of made-up traditions and meaningless practices.
