Jesus: The Mystery of God from the Prime Time with God Devotional

That their hearts may be encouraged,
being knit together in love,
and attaining to all riches
of the full assurance of understanding,
to the knowledge of the mystery of God, 
both of the Father and of Christ.
Colossians 2:2

Jesus wants you to have full assurance of your salvation. You can know that you are saved, and you can know how to please the Father. You can know these things because Jesus lives in your life and gives complete confidence to you. The world doesn’t understand this mystery, but the Father and Jesus have taken the mystery out of your relationship with them. The fact that the Son indwells you is a mystery to the world, but you understand it because you originally asked Jesus into your heart when you were saved. The Mystery of God is the fact that Jesus indwells you to give you full assurance of sins forgiven and a future home in Heaven.

Lord, I want to know everything about my salvation. Sometimes I just don’t understand what You are doing in my life. Sometimes things puzzle me.

Jesus is the Mystery of God; in Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3). When you don’t understand what’s happening in your life, learn more about Jesus to find answers for your questions. When you are not sure what to do, come to Jesus for guidance. He can help you learn about the Mystery of God.

Lord Jesus, thank You for teaching me how to live the Christian life. Thank You for new life and a future hope of Heaven. Help me learn more about how to live for You. Amen.
