Bible: Ephesians 3:8-13

3:8 To me – less than the least of all the saints 1 this grace was given, 2  to proclaim to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ 3:9 and to enlighten 3  everyone about God’s secret plan 4  – a secret that has been hidden for ages 5  in God 6  who has created all things. 3:10 The purpose of this enlightenment is that 7  through the church the multifaceted wisdom 8  of God should now be disclosed to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly realms. 3:11 This was according to 9  the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 3:12 in whom we have boldness and confident access 10  to God 11  because of 12  Christ’s 13  faithfulness. 14  3:13 For this reason I ask you 15  not to lose heart because of what I am suffering for you, 16  which 17  is your glory. 18
