My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. – Colossians 2:2-3 (NIV)
According to the apostle Paul, when we try to understand the life of Jesus, we are stepping into a treasure chest of wisdom and knowledge. But like most wisdom, our inquiries start as a mystery. The mystery of Christ as the God-man helps us to face our sufferings with the One who experienced our pain. The mystery of the resurrection empowers us with hope for situations that would lead us to despair. Learn about Jesus Christ so that you can live encouraged in heart and have the full riches that God wants to give.
