In a recent prayer meeting, one of our fellow workers prayed, “And thank you God for telling us the secret of the world.” I (Doug) loved that prayer. I instantly thought of the word, “mystery,” in Ephesians 3:6 — “This mystery is that through the gospel, the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.” Paul continues in Eph. 6:19, “Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains.” Paul was in jail at the time, but he still went on to ask, “Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.” Many missional workers expose themselves, their local partners, and even their own family members to substantial risks to spread the knowledge of “the mystery.” We’re grateful for their (your) courage, determination, and tenacity. If you’re trying to multiply disciples and churches in dangerous places, we’re have deep respect for you. But, either way, regardless of where we serve, what an honor it is to share “the mystery” with others. Let’s not miss out on a single opportunity to do so, around the block or around the world! “Thank you, God, for telling us the secret of the world.”
