... and that they may become progressively more intimately acquainted with and may know more definitely and accurately and thoroughly that mystic secret of God, [which is] Christ (the Anointed One). In Him all the treasures of [divine] wisdom (comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God) and [all the riches of spiritual] knowledge and enlightenment are stored up and lie hidden. (Colossians 2:2, 3 AMP)
Sometimes guys say a woman is mysterious. If a woman's man is the silent type she might say he's always a mystery, tough to figure out. There are so many mystery and suspense books out for adults. Children had Harry Potter. Who would have guessed that Jesus would be the divine Mystery?
To know thoroughly the mystic secret of God, we have to be near Him, not just once a week but each day, and as often each day as we can. His word, Old Testament and New, is the treasure map. If you read it you find secrets, like we can find a cozy home in His heart of hearts. Or Jesus is symbolized in every book of the Bible. In the book of Ruth He's symbolized by the one who rescued and provided for Ruth and her deceased husband's mother by marrying Ruth. Jesus rescued us on the cross and is now our Savior.
We can also have insight into the ways of God. So when we want to find His will we go to our Savior and maybe pray, "Lord Jesus, thank you for loving me and giving up Your life for me. It shows me a love beyond here. I need to ask something of You. I need your will whispered in my ear so I can do what pleases you tomorrow. Thank You. I'll be waiting. Love you."
One of the fun parts is the spiritual knowledge that lies hidden in Him. He's so multifaceted and to find the knowledge we have to look into the depths of Him. Again we have to get very near Him and find a verse and listen to what it says. It's best if we find one that is not morose but more on the interesting or positive side. It'll usually speak to us through a word. Expand on that word. The treasures are usually in it for us to find.
