Paul’s Stewardship

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:1 - For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:2 - if indeed you have heard of the administration of God’s grace which was given to me for you;
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:3 - that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before briefly.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:4 - [fn]By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight [fn]into the mystery of Christ,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:5 - which in other generations was not made known to [fn]mankind, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets [fn]in the Spirit;
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:6 - to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:7 - of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of God’s grace which was given to me according to the working of His power.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:8 - To me, the very least of all [fn]saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:9 - and to [fn]enlighten all people as to what the plan of the mystery is which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things;
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:10 - so that the multifaceted wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:11 - This was in accordance with the [fn]eternal purpose which He [fn]carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:12 - in whom we have boldness and [fn]confident access through faith [fn]in Him.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:13 - Therefore I ask [fn]you not to become discouraged about my tribulations in your behalf, [fn]since they are your glory.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:14 - For this reason I bend my knees before the Father,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:15 - from whom [fn]every family in heaven and on earth derives its name,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:16 - that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner [fn]self,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:17 - so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:18 - may be able to comprehend with all the [fn]saints what is the width and length and height and depth,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:19 - and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to all the fullness of God.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:20 - Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 3:21 - to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations [fn]forever and ever. Amen.
