Message of the Day: We Look Forward To A time of Restoration, Harmony, and Meaningful Relationship Under the Headship of Christ!
“…having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.” (Ephesians 1:9-10, NKJV)
God has a “secret plan” (mystery), which he now reveals. Believers already know that people have forgiveness only through the grace of God and the blood of Christ, but a further truth is now made known. This truth is that one day all the rebellion and confusion throughout the universe will cease, and unity between God and his creation will at last be restored through Christ. The object is to restore harmony to those alienated communities, and produce eternal concord and love. The universe will find its full meaning in him.
In a world of confusion, where things do not make sense, we look forward to the time when everything will be brought into meaningful relationship under the headship of Christ.
