The Mystery of God Revealed – Eph 3:1-21
Written by John Tsang   
Monday, 23 October 2017 12:35

 

This mystery is that through the gospel

the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel,

members together of one body, and sharers together

in the promise in Christ Jesus.

(Eph 3:6)

 

Mysteries are a favourite type of literature for many. Nothing quite as satisfying as solving a mystery whether it is Sherlock Holmes, Hardy Boys, Father Brown, or Murdoch Mysteries! Mysteries, in the Biblical sense, are things that are hidden by God, which can never be known by humanity through their own intelligence, and are only revealed by the Spirit of God. In Eph 1, Paul named one of the spiritual blessings of being in Christ is that God makes known to us, the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure (Eph 1:9). Here in Eph 3:6, Paul returns to this theme and explains the mystery revealed to him and to us.

Amazing Grace - How Sweet the Sound, that Saved a Wretch like Who? Eph 2:1-22
Written by John Tsang   
Monday, 16 October 2017 12:49

 

There are so many wonderful and familiar verses in Ephesians 2 that speak of the radical transformation that comes through the gift of salvation – “dead in your sins but now made alive in Christ”, “deserving of wrath but God showed us the incomparable riches of his grace”, and “saved by grace through faith and not by works from yourselves”. This past Sunday, Steve helped us to reflect on this dramatic transformation that we call conversion.

Thanksgiving and Prayer – Eph 1:15-23
Written by John Tsang   
Thursday, 12 October 2017 10:48

 

Gratitude at its deepest level embraces all of life with thanksgiving:

the good and the bad, the joyful and the painful, the holy and the not so holy.

Jesus calls us to recognize that gladness and sadness are never separate,

that joy and sorrow really belong together,

and that mourning and dancing are part of the same movement.

Gratitude is the discipline in which I constantly reclaim my whole past

as the concrete way God has led me to this moment

and is sending me into the future.

(Henri Nouwen, Spiritual Formation)

 

 

Last Sunday, we came across a very appropriate passage for Thanksgiving Sunday - Ephesians 1:15-23. After Paul listed the many spiritual blessings that we have in Christ (Eph 1:1-14), he then bursted into thanksgiving to God for the believers in Ephesus. Even though Paul was imprisoned in Rome when he wrote Ephesians, he found joy and thanksgiving in the lives of those whom he had the opportunity to mentor and disciple.
