When we look up at the vastness of the heavens it is a beauty that declares the glory of God! (Psalm 19:1). The god of this world (satan) has blinded the minds of those who do not believe and we as servants of Christ preach not about ourselves, but of the power of the living God. (2 Corinthians 4:3-7). But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
There has now been a mystery revealed through the saints of God and when we think of its meaning it is good to know that Christ can and does live within His people. (Colossians 1:26-29). Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
The wonderful knowledge of Christ shines within the believer, and it is the wisdom of God we will glory in! (Jeremiah 9:23-24). Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.
