The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
Oh, what a mystery is the gospel of salvation, and the blessed contents of it! What a mystery is that great and fundamental truth, "God in Christ, and Christ in God!" (2 Corinthians 5:19; Colossians 3:3.) What a mystery that Three sacred persons should be in One, and yet the same eternal, undivided, JEHOVAH! (1 John 5:7.) What a mystery Jesus speaks of when addressing the Father, and speaking of himself and church--"I in them, and thou in me!" (John 17:23.) What a mystery, yea, what a great mystery, is godliness: "God manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory!" (1 Timothy 3:16.) And is there not another mystery, to every truly regenerated believer, as great, yea, if possible, greater than any, namely, that I should believe in Jesus, and Christ be formed in my heart the hope of glory, when thousands neither know the Lord, nor believe the record God hath given of his dear Son!
