Bible Notes

Ephesians 1:8-20 (17.01.18)

Ephesians 1:8-10
With all wisdom and understanding, [9] he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, [10] to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

As many of you know, I’m a great Doctor Who fan. Often the Doctor and his companions will find themselves in trouble. The Doctor will always claim that he has a plan, it’s just, when they ask him/her what it is, the answer is always ‘I don’t know yet!’ Discussion on my table at the Drop-In Alpha course on Tuesday was about how the world is broken or in trouble. The great news is that God has a plan. The even greater news is that he has shared that plan with us, and the plan is Jesus. In and through Jesus, God will bring back together our broken relationships with each other, Creation and himself.

Thank you Father that you don’t cast us aside because we are broken, but through Christ you are fixing all things. Help us to play our part in uniting that which is divided.
