Eph 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,
Eph 1:18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
Eph 1:19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us, the ones believing according to the working of His mighty strength
Eph 1:20 which He worked in Christ in raising Him from the dead, and He seated Him at His right hand in the heavenlies,
Notice how Paul begins in verse 17!
He asks the Father to give him a spirit of revelation in the knowledge of His Son.
What is the result of this spirit of revelation?
That the eyes of my understanding being enlightened I will see what God has placed INSIDE OF Christ.
So what does Jesus have inside of Him?
Here are a few things that Paul lists.
- You will know what the hope of God’s calling for you is.
- You will know what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance for you.
- You will know what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward you.
God has not given you a bunch of things!
1Co 1:30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption
Col 3:11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, foreigner, Scythian, slave or freeman, but Christ is all things in all.
He has given you His Son who has been made into all things and is all things!
The more is the revelation of Jesus the more is the revelation of things which Jesus has been made for you.
What makes Jesus different to all other religions is that it’s not about getting lots of things from God.
Once that you receive Jesus you get it all.
He is God’s whole package deal in one man.
Jesus is revealed by the work of His cross.
When the cross is applied to our life it kills a part of our old self and automatically reveals Jesus.
Every act of our obedience to God applies the cross.
Less of us and more of Jesus.
This is the good news that God has given the world!
Who does not like good news and what better news can there be than this?
What happens when the cross is not talked about or taught?
Well, we no longer have the instrument that will reveal Christ and all things which He has been made into for you.
Isn’t this troubling that we don’t teach the cross anymore?
We’ve tricked ourselves into not having Jesus and all the things we need, revealed.
We’ve stopped our boat too short to simply talk about Jesus accepting us but not revealed in us.
The bottom line is that when you receive Jesus into your heart you receive the whole package deal at one time.
Just ask Him to come inside your life!
This is my Face Book status for today.
“In reality God is not so much into blessing us. He blesses what is done in His Son. God knows that without Jesus we are sinners. There is no freedom or wholeness in us. All these things are In Jesus. The honor is not upon us, it’s upon Jesus. Our freedom and healing are not separate blessings that God gives to us. The healing is in Jesus. The deliverance is in Jesus. When I ask God to heal or deliver me, He will reveal more of Jesus to me.”
