Ephesians 3

Therefore I Paul, the prisoner of Christ for the sake of you Gentiles, if indeed you have heard the economy of the grace of God which is given to me unto you; that according to revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I formerly wrote to you briefly, according to which you, reading, are able to know my understanding in the mystery of Christ; which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it is now revealed to his holy apostles and prophets through the Spirit; that the Gentiles are to be fellow-heirs, and the same body, and partakers of the promise of Christ Jesus through the gospel, whose minister I became, according to the gift of the grace of God which was given unto me; according to the working of his power. To me, the least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to shine forth what is the economy of the mystery which has been hidden from the ages in God who created all things; 10 in order that the manifold wisdom of God through the church, may now be made known to the governments and authorities in the heavenlies, 11 according to the purpose of the ages which he made in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence through the faith of him. 13 Therefore I ask that you faint not in my tribulations in your behalf, which is your glory. 14 For this cause I bow my knees to the Father, 15 of whom the whole family in heavens and upon earth is named, 16 in order that he may grant unto you, according to the riches of his glory, that you be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; 18 being rooted and grounded in divine love, in order that you may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height, 19 and to know the divine love of Christ which transcends knowledge, in order that you may be filled with all the fulness of God. 20 And to him who is able to do exceedingly above all things which we ask or think, according to the power working in us, 21 to him be glory in the church indeed in Christ Jesus unto all the generations of the age of the ages: Amen.
