Paul discloses the mystery of God’s plan for His Salvation. We recognise that we were dead in our trespasses and sins but now have been made alive in Christ. The mystery is that we have been included into the body of Christ. Yet, in understanding the mystery, do we recognise the need for ministry? Paul was a highly motivated individual who would eventually die in his desire to proclaim the gospel. As we look around us today, we see people increasingly alienated from God. As we look around us we see people in a hopeless situation and it is in understanding God’s plan that we find strength and encouragement to reach out to others.
