The Mystery of Grace – January 1, 2023

“The Mystery of Grace”
Text: Ephesians 3:1-13
In Ephesians chapter 3, Paul speaks of the mystery of Christ that was revealed to him. Part of this mystery is that through Christ, God’s grace extends to gentiles (those outside the Jewish faith) in addition to the Jews. We recognize this today as part of Epiphany Sunday, where we remember that the wise men who worshiped and brought gifts to Jesus were foreigners and yet were among the first to believe in Him. We also celebrate that God continues to work through us bringing His good news to others today by hearing a recent story of someone accepting God’s salvation in their life.
