Ephesians 3:2-3

If, as I suppose, you have heard of the stewardship of God’s grace that was given to me for your benefit, namely, that the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly earlier.

St. Paul knew that it was God’s grace that deserved all the praise, not him.

He knew how he had mercilessly persecuted the first Christians.

But in return, he wasn’t punished.

Instead, God’s unconditional love was made known to him in a very personal way.

It redirected Paul to follow Christ.

The mystery was made known to me by revelation.”

Have you ever had a revelation?

I think we would experience them more often if we would be focusing our attention on the present moment.

When we pour ourselves out in love for the other, we receive a hundred-fold in return.

We have to first die to ourselves…as in to our egos.

For me, it took a ruptured appendix and total loss of my ability to care for myself.

As I lay in a hospital bed hooked up to IV’s and an NG tube through my nose to my stomach, a most wondrous revelation occurred in the middle of the night.

At my lowest place where I could do nothing for myself, I had an experience of Love like I had never experienced it before.

I knew I was loved infinitely – and so was everyone and everything else.

God’s grace covers all that is.

May you know this in the depths of your being!
