Bible: Eph 3:2-12

3:2 if indeed 1  you have heard of the stewardship 2  of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3:3 that 3  by revelation the divine secret 4  was made known to me, as I wrote before briefly. 5  3:4 When reading this, 6  you will be able to 7  understand my insight into this secret 8  of Christ. 3:5 Now this secret 9  was not disclosed to people 10  in former 11  generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by 12  the Spirit, 3:6 namely, that through the gospel 13  the Gentiles are fellow heirs, fellow members 14  of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus. 3:7 I became a servant of this gospel 15  according to the gift of God’s grace that was given to me by 16  the exercise of his power. 17  3:8 To me – less than the least of all the saints 18 this grace was given, 19  to proclaim to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ 3:9 and to enlighten 20  everyone about God’s secret plan 21  – a secret that has been hidden for ages 22  in God 23  who has created all things. 3:10 The purpose of this enlightenment is that 24  through the church the multifaceted wisdom 25  of God should now be disclosed to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly realms. 3:11 This was according to 26  the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 3:12 in whom we have boldness and confident access 27  to God 28  because of 29  Christ’s 30  faithfulness. 31
