The Allure of Mystery

There are things about God, Jesus, and salvation that the Bible simply describes as “mystery,” that is, hidden truth or a mystic secret.

This drives some people crazy; they want to understand all and be able to fully explain everything.  Anything less causes frustration and angst.

For me, I relish the realization that some things of God are but a mystery.  That draws me to him; it is an allure.  Daily, I strive to unravel his mystery and know him more fully.  This is as it should be.

To explore this mystery motif more fully, consider the following verses that evoke the “mystery” explanation:

Job 11:7
Romans 11:25 and 16:25
1 Corinthians 15:51
Ephesians 1:9, 3:3-4, 3:6, 3:9, 5:32, and 6:19
Colossians 1:26-27, 2:2, and 4:3
1 Timothy 3:16
Revelations 10:7

[The word mystery is used in other contexts in Daniel 2:18-47, 4:9, 1 Corinthians 13:2, 14:2, and Revelation 1:20, 17:5, 7]
