The Apostle Paul, writing in Ephesians chapter 3, said that God had appointed him to declare the mysteries of Christ, which he had received by revelation, to the Gentiles. Revelation, that before then was hidden, but at the appointed time, God through His Spirit, revealed the benefits they had in Christ, as fellow-heirs and joint-partakers of God’s promise. Paul was saying, in effect, that he was privileged to have the responsibility to declare the good news of the inexhaustible riches and generosity of Christ.
That is why he prayed in Ephesians 1:18 that “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.” Beloved, God desires that we have full knowledge of what Jesus Christ died and resurrected to give to us. God desires that we appropriate the benefits of the finished work and live up to the standard of life that He desires for us. However, until you know, the devil would continue to garage you into believing that where you are is the best you would ever attain. Do not settle for his lies. You have not even scratched the surface in terms of what God has purposed for you.
Child of God, you must be challenged by the current state of affairs across the world, especially as it concerns believers living out God’s perfect plans for their lives. I must confess to you that I am. Things have gone out of hand in today’s world. Today, we are seeing “servants upon horses and princes walking as servants upon the earth” (Eccl. 10:7). Beloved, this is an anomaly and it is definitely not what Jesus died for. He died for you to be the best you can ever be. Don’t ever settle for anything less.
