Romans 16:25 (NLT)
Now all glory to God, who is able to make you strong, just as my Good News says. This message about Jesus Christ has revealed his plan for you Gentiles, a plan kept secret from the beginning of time.
The apostle’s Good News is the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Good News overwhelmed Paul who had to give glory to God just to think about what God had done for him. It is a plan God established from the beginning of man for the redemption of man. And now it was being made known to the Gentiles of the population.
The King James Version of the scriptures says God’s plan was a mystery revealed. To man the sacrifice of Jesus at the cross does not make sense. How could one man who died save the entire world from sin? It is not something easily understood. Romans 9:20 helps us in that is says, “But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? "Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, 'Why did you make me like this?'” Who are we to question what God has done? He is the creator, the designer of us all. What He has done is a mystery, something far beyond our understanding. Many of us have computers at home, which perform amazing feats of calculations. Do we understand how they work or can we question the engineers who designed them? Most of us cannot. Yet we sit down with faith every day that those computers will produce the results we wish. And yet a computer is just a machine designed by man. God’s design and plan for our lives is far greater than man can imagine. God created a perfect plan for our salvation from sin. It is by faith in His Son Jesus Christ who died for our sins, who rose again to life and established His kingdom for all those who believe that we shall be saved. Have you confessed Jesus Christ as your savior? If you have, give all glory to God and praise Him for His wonderful plan; for God has revealed to you a mystery. Pray and give praise to the Lord. Bless His name as the Almighty King. Give thanks for His free gift of salvation.
