… the mystery hidden for ages and generations
but now revealed to his saints.

Colossians 1:26 ESV

The mystery of the Incarnate God …

… to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge …

Colossians 2:2b-3a ESV

The plans of His heart to all generations …

The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
    he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
    the plans of his heart to all generations.

Psalm 33:10-11 ESV

The “ultimate” son of David, Jesus, fulfills His heartfelt plans!

For I said, “Steadfast love will be built up forever;
    in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.”
You have said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one;
    I have sworn to David my servant:
‘I will establish your offspring forever,
    and build your throne for all generations.’”

Psalm 89:2-4 ESV

Jesus, promised to be our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace, rules over His eternal Kingdom enduring throughout all generations.

  All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
    and all your saints shall bless you!
They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom
    and tell of your power,
to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds,
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
    and your dominion endures throughout all generations.

Psalm 145:10-13 ESV

We continue to proclaim HIM, throughout all generations – extolling the WONDERS of the LORD!

Let the rich of the earth feast and worship.
    Bow before him, all who are mortal,
    all whose lives will end as dust.
Our children will also serve him.
    Future generations will hear about the wonders of the Lord.
His righteous acts will be told to those not yet born.
    They will hear about everything he has done.

Psalm 22:29-31 ESV

Today we celebrate Christ’s rule over the nations, praying as He taught His disciples, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!”

He rules the world with truth and grace
and makes the nations prove
the glories of his righteousness
and wonders of his love,
and wonders of his love,
and wonders, wonders of his love.

Isaac Watts

Father, we praise you, you have revealed the mystery of your grace, Christ in us, our hope of glory! May we not hide this truth from the next generation. Grant us grace and power to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our children, and their children. Make us a generation of life-giving, light-bearing witnesses to your love and grace!
