The Upward Look
by Max D. Hutto,
“This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.” Ephesians 3:6 ESV
The great mystery that was once hidden and now has been revealed is that Gentiles shared equally in God’s grace. God’s church is not a Jewish church nor a Gentile church but is composed of believers from all nations, from all people groups, who trust in Jesus as Savior. There are no second-class citizens in the kingdom of God. All people, no matter their race, nationality, or culture, all people can find forgiveness, cleansing, and righteousness through faith and trust in Christ.
Lord Jesus, I am thankful to be accepted as a fellow heir and partaker of Your gospel of grace. Help me to share the glorious gospel with all people so they can believe in Christ.
