Do You Want to Know a Secret?

Read: Colossians 1:24-26

During Jesus’s ministry, “The disciples came to Him and asked, ‘Why do you speak to the people in parables?’ He replied, ‘Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them’” (Matthew 13:10-12).

The “them” in verse 12 refers to non-believers. In Jesus’s day, many of his stories remained a mystery, or a secret, to non- believers. But, then came Paul. He was able to reveal that Jesus came to seek and save lost sinners just like us. He said in Colossians that he had become a “suffering” servant of the body of Christ, which is the church. He was presenting “the word of God in its fullness.” Because Paul told the world, people heard about Jesus and came to know him.

We can do what Paul did and share the story of Jesus. Because we now have the Bible, we can both tell and show the story. As believers in a relationship with Him, through the Holy Spirit, Jesus continually reveals new things to us as we read scripture and pray. We want to share with others the knowledge and joy this brings. It’s one way to be sure we are progressing in our journey of learning about who Jesus is and who he wants us to be.

The Bible only remains a secret if it is not read. To a world that still waits in desperation to hear the Good News, what a joy to share the wondrous secret that God’s word is alive and active and waiting to be revealed (Hebrews 4:12)!

Reflect:

  • If you are not spending at least 10 minutes each day reading your Bible, start today with a Bible reading plan! 
  • What is one way you have found reading the Bible to be difficult? What is one way you have found joy and comfort in reading?
  • What are some scriptures that you have found especially helpful in your journey? Have you thought about sharing those with others as a way to introduce them to Bible reading?
