God is orchestrating a beautiful, sychronous movement to display his wisdom to the unseen powers and forces in the heavenly realms. We all have a part to play and listening to the Spirit is paramount. Apostle Paul writes to the church in Ephesus, saying it like this:

And this is God’s plan: Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus.  By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News. Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people, he graciously gave me the privilege of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ. I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning. God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 3:6-11

Maybe you didn’t know you were part of an eternal plan, that God put into action through Jesus. Paul knew his part was to spread the gospel to Gentiles. My part is to spread the gospel through this blog. Your part is just that – your part. But together, we are a beautiful, sychronous message full of rich variety declaring God’s wisdom to the unseen authorities in heavenly realms. In plain language, the angels and demons are watching us and can’t believe what God is doing through humans.

They {prophets} were told that their messages were not for themselves, but for you. And now this Good News has been announced to you by those who preached in the power of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. It is all so wonderful that even the angels are eagerly watching these things happen.

1 Peter 1:12

What should my response be to the calling I received to be an example of God’s wisdom to angels and demons? Paul says it like this:

Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God.

Ephesians 4:1

What does a living a worthy life look like? Paul goes on to say:

Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. 

Ephesians 4:2-3

It kind of sounds like a worthy life is living in synchrony with other followers of Jesus. Together, we can put on quite a display for those unseen forces! But we can’t do it if we are doing our own thing. It has to be done his way, keeping in step with him.

That’s a lot to absorb for one day!

  1. 2nd Chronicles 7:14, if my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face; then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.
