Now to God who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but is now disclosed and through the prophetic writings is made known to all the gentiles, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith - to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever! Amen.
Reflection. Go back through the passage and have a close look for a key phrase: 'according to.' It occurs three times.
According to my gospel.
According to the revelation.
According to the command.
Why? 'To bring about the obedience of faith.'
Now have another read through. Can we Find One who needs to cone to faith. The Gospel has been revealed and proclaimed.
Praise. We give thanks for the revelation of the great mystery of the Good News of Jesus. We sing your praises Lord. We proclaim your wisdom to the world. In and through Jesus. Amen.
