Sharing the abundant love

God gave his grace to me, the least of all God’s people, to preach the good news about the immeasurable riches of Christ to the Gentiles. God sent me to reveal the secret plan that had been hidden since the beginning of time by God, who created everything. God’s purpose is now to show the rulers and powers in the heavens the many different varieties of his wisdom through the church. This was consistent with the plan he had from the beginning of time that he accomplished through Christ Jesus our Lord. In Christ we have bold and confident access to God through faith in him. So then, I ask you not to become discouraged by what I’m suffering for you, which is your glory. ~Eph. 3:8-13 (CEB)

Why must we go out to the far ends of the world to preach the Gospel of Jesus when people do not have to know Jesus in order to enter the house of God?   We must go out because we want to share with all people the abundant love and hope, joy and peace that Jesus brought to us.  We want to “proclaim the unfathomable treasure of Christ” and “throw light on the inner workings of the mystery kept hidden through all ages in God, the creator of everything”.

What we have received is so beautiful and so rich that we cannot hold it for ourselves but feel compelled to bring it to every human being on earth. ~From Bread for the Journey, by Henri J. M. Nouwen

Heavenly Father, thank You so much for all that you have done for me. Thank You for the love, hope, joy and peace that can be known through Jesus. Help me to boldly go out and proclaim the treasures that can be found in Christ so that others can find light. Amen.
