The Mystery of Christ and the Church

Isaac D. Martin

[an error occurred while processing this directive]


A mystery is something that is secret or impossible to fully understand. It is also something that arouses curiosity through its obscure nature. The relationship of Christ to His church cannot be understood by anyone outside His kingdom. Even a person who has been saved finds it difficult to explain. He just knows that Christ has forgiven his sins and has washed them away by His blood. Those close to the new Christian also know that he is different, but they cannot understand why.

God created the world with many mysteries. He also created man with the ability to explore these mysteries, although the natural man can never truly comprehend them. God surrounds Himself with mysteries that man cannot solve, and He uses them to attract man's attention.

We live in a world where people expect an explanation for everything. Many suffer spiritually because they have not learned to live by faith. Faith opens the gate to the blessings of salvation. It allows us to experience the mysteries associated with redemption, even though we cannot explain them. We are like the blind man whom the Pharisees asked repeatedly how he had received his sight. His reply was simple and direct: "One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see."
