to make known
how great … are the riches of the glory
of this mystery,
which is Christ in you,
the hope of glory.” (Col. 1:27)
In you, the mystery is unveiled.
In you is the
Hope of glory.
In the shadow of the
Man and Woman’s sin by the
Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Bad,
The Lord of grace had a plan.
The plan was hidden in plain sight
As it unfolded on the pages of the Torah
And the prophets
And the psalmists
And the sages.
Though the plan had been
Practiced on the altars of holy places
And prophesied on the lips of holy men
And played on harpists’ strings and sung,
No saint, or angel, or demon had seen it fully
Christ’s resurrection power took up residence
God’s Spirit alive inside you.
I bless you today to walk the earth
As God’s mystery unveiled—
His hope unleashed.
Christ in you is the hope of glory.
