I believe that the use of the word “make” is not used as a forceful word. We must always remember the context. God through Paul states in II Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. As such we are aslo stewards of the mystery. Paul was our Ambassador in bonds for the mystery and the risen Christ through Paul says in Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of God that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice holy and acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Paul states in Ephesians 6:18-19 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make know the mystery of the gospel. Let us never forget Pauls own words he is our pattern. Paul knew all to well the evil of this world and that time was of the essence and encouraged the importance of sharing the mystery of reconciliation to as many as we can.
