Bible Text: Ephesians 3:1-13 |


Paul lived for ultimate values, and was willing to go to prison for them. These values are: 1. Life in Christ, 2. Being a masterpiece of His,  3. Peace and friendship with God, 4. Peace and friendship with believers, 5. God’s grace (underserved kindness), 6. Forgiveness in Christ and 7. Resurrection hope.

Furthermore, Paul saw his ministry to the Gentiles as a gift from God. Ministry is the flow of grace, undeserved kindness, from God to others!

Finally, Paul writes that the church makes God’s wisdom known to spiritual beings in the heavenly realms. The church has a lofty role more than anything we've likely imagined.
