Has chosen to make known

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.

Colossians 1:27-28 NIV

The Holy Spirit lives within our hearts when we place our hope and trust in Jesus Christ.  It is the Holy Spirit who leads and guides us into all truth.  As we seek the Lord and we walk with Him we grow in maturity.  The Lord’s desire is that all of us would walk in deep maturity.

If we desire wisdom in every area of our lives we need to seek the Lord with all our heart.  What we have with Jesus Christ is a relationship.  It is not a list of rules that need to be followed or a group of tasks that need to be completed.  When people simply attend church on Sunday mornings without cultivating a deep relationship with the Lord on a daily basis they fail to understand the depth of all that Jesus has done for them.

When we come to understand all that Jesus did for us and all that He faced upon the cross we will look at our relationship with Him in a different light.  Let us draw near each day and grow in maturity with the Lord.  Let us remove those things from our lives that hinder us and walk in all that God has for us.  He desires to bless our lives in every area, but if we use our lives to fulfill the lust of the flesh we miss out on all that God has for us.
