Christ purpose and his will
With all wisdom and understanding, 9he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. 11In him we were also chosen, a having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,
1: 9-10 God was not intentionally keeping his plan a secret (“ the mystery of his will”), but his plan for the world could not be fully understood until Christ rose from the dead. God’s purpose for sending Christ was to unite Jews and Gentiles in one body with Christ as the head. Many people still do not understand God’s plan, but at the right time (“ when the times reach their fulfillment”), he will bring us together to be with him forever. Then everyone will understand. On that day, all people will bow to Jesus as Lord, either because they love him or because they are required to submit in his presence (see Philippians 2: 10-11) Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and know CHRIST purpose and his will, will be shown in the defeat of evil or the justification and forgives of our sins.
