Ephesians 3


Paul's Stewardship

Ephesians 3:1
  For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles--
Ephesians 3:2
  if indeed you have heard of the stewardship of God's grace which was given to me for you;
Ephesians 3:3
  that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief.
Ephesians 3:4
  By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ,
Ephesians 3:5
  which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit;
Ephesians 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,
Ephesians 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.
Ephesians 3:8
  To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ,
Ephesians 3:9
  and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things;
Ephesians 3:10
  so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 3:11
  This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord,
Ephesians 3:12
  in whom we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him.
Ephesians 3:13
  Therefore I ask you not to lose heart at my tribulations on your behalf, for they are your glory.
Ephesians 3:14
  For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,
Ephesians 3:15
  from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name,
Ephesians 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 man,
Ephesians 3:17
  so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
Ephesians 3:18
  may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
Ephesians 3:19
  and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 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,
Ephesians 3:21
  to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
