Experiencing the Mystery of Christ

The song “Mystery of Christ” is about our union with God, who is Love.  Jesus said: “Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God…” (Luke 8:10a KJV). The union of the Trinity is a mystery, and so is every believer’s union with Christ.  “God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery [the Greek word mysterion], which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”[i].  The mystery of the ages is living inside us, his Spirit co-mingling with ours. The real, eternal part of you is your spirit.  Your spirit is joined to the Holy Spirit.  To the Corinthians, Paul writes: “But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.”[ii]  In this verse, the Greek verb kallaó means “to unite, to knit or weld together,” “to mingle,” or “to join together,” and “to make two into one.”

Paul writes to the church in Colossae:  “There is a divine mystery—a secret surprise that has been concealed from the world for generations, but now it’s being revealed, unfolded and manifested for every holy believer to experience. Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory!” Col. 1:26-27 TPT.

“For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.”  Col. 3:3

Many of us have read this so many times that we pass over it quickly.  We might think we really know it when we really have only begun to scratch the surface of its full meaning.  “Your real life is hidden with Christ in God.”  The real you is hidden—you have to dig deep to understand the full wonderful truth about who you are.
