God’s Secret Plan

Our Bible Reading today tells us that God had a secret. He kept this secret that “had been hidden in him since the beginning of time” (verse 9b).
In verse 3, Paul says that God let him know His secret plan. What was this secret plan? The plan was “that by hearing the Good News, those who are not Jews will share with the Jews in the blessings God has for his people. They are part of the same body, and they share in the promise God made through Christ Jesus” (verse 6b).
Through God’s grace and love, He made a way for non-Jewish people to have their sins forgiven. That way was through Jesus. He died on the cross for non-Jews as well as Jews.
Whether you are a Jew or a non-Jew, Jesus died and arose for you. “In Christ we come before God with freedom and without fear. We can do this because of our faith in Christ” (verse 12).
