We continue our series on "equipping the saints" which is a challenging concept to pin down in 3 or 5 or 10 easy steps. Josh looks at Ephesians 3 today, where Paul, who is writing from prison, is sharing his understanding of the mystery of Christ. Foundationally, that mystery is that the Gentiles are also heirs of Christ. But the mysteries of Christ are many and the questions they invite are what bring blessing to our lives as prisoners of this gospel that Paul describes. Ephesians 3:1-13; Exodus 33:14-15; Psalm 19:14.

There are some testimonies of the grace of God working in the lives of the RCC family at the end of service.

Josh shared a quote today from Johnny Hill: "The mystery of Jesus as spoken of in this passage embodies the kind of transformative power to help heal, restore, and renew broken lives, communities, institutions and even nations. This particular passage is a long prayer of the author's insight into the mystery of Christ. The church is presented as the cosmic organism for revealing and understanding God's divine will for humanity and all creation. The epiphany of the Lord is made possible because of God's self-disclosure. God discloses or reveals God's self to human beings as an expression of God's inexhaustible love and mercy. The epiphany speaks to an awakening and enlightenment and the revelation of the god revealed in the life of Jesus Christ. It is a kind of epiphany that transforms lives and calls for new allegiances, goals, and directions."
