Ephesians 3: 8-10
Although I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given to me to bring to the Gentiles the news of the boundless riches of Christ, and to make everyone see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; so that through the church the wisdom of God in its rich variety might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.

Spoiler Alert! That is warning before an article that discusses a book or movie or tv episode plot. As a courtesy to those who have not read the book or seen the movie, the author lets the reader choose what to do with the information. Read on and have the plot-reveal spoiled in advance or choose to delay the reading until you have experienced the plot as it was meant to be revealed. Spoiler Alert! That is my spoiler alert for us all this day. The spoiler is that there is no more need for spoiler alerts. We Christians keep thinking there is more to know before we do anything. We keep looking under rocks, decoding secret passwords, finding secret passages as if the journey of the Christian is meant to be a video game with multiple levels of achievement and expertise, all driven by a desire to know the secrets, to reveal the mystery. Well, troops, Christ is born. Christ has lived, taught, healed, and loved. Christ has died. Christ has risen again. The only mystery to be revealed is whether you and I will shape the rest of our day, the rest of our lives based on what we already know.
