Seeing God’s Eternal Purpose and Enlightening All

Grace is given “to announce to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ as the gospel and to enlighten all that they may see what the economy of the mystery is, which throughout the ages has been hidden in God, who created all things…according to the eternal purpose which He made in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Eph. 3:8-11)
Paul preached not only the gospel of the unsearchable riches of Christ; he also preached the gospel concerning the economy of the mystery hidden in God. Today we must announce the gospel concerning the mystery hidden in God in order to enlighten all so that they may see what is the economy of the mystery hidden in God, who created all things for the fulfillment of His will, the desire of His heart, and His eternal purpose. (The Recovery of the Church, msg 1, II.H, II.H.2)
Lord, grace us to see Your eternal purpose, to lay hold of Your unsearchable riches, and to gospelize so that many more in Los Angeles may be enlightened to see God’s economy.
