Colossians 2:2-3 ” My purpose 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 treasure of wisdom and knowledge.”

Whether you’ve been a Believer for years or days, we can all agree on this, “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments, and His paths beyond tracing out!” (Romans 11:33) We can also all agree that the mysteries of God take a lifetime to pursue for a fuller and more complete understanding of Him. The revelation of the mysteries of God are both easy and most difficult to obtain, because it requires work on our part…mainly searching the Scriptures for spiritual truths, divine wisdom and insights in order to understand Biblical concepts and see the relationships between them. But this takes discipline and commitment to achieve…and sadly a lot of Christians today just aren’t that engaged. They’d rather hear bits and pieces preached from the pulpit every Sunday and let it go at that. But Paul is encouraging all of us here in Colossians that if we do search the Scriptures for ourselves, the spiritual benefits we obtain in that daily Bible study will give us a great harvest of revealed truths.
