3:1 For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus1 for the sake of you Gentiles—3:2 if indeed2 you have heard of the stewardship3 of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3:3 that4 by revelation the divine secret5 was made known to me, as I wrote before briefly.6 3:4 When reading this,7 you will be able to8 understand my insight into this secret9 of Christ. 3:5 Now this secret10 was not disclosed to people11 in former12 generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by13 the Spirit, 3:6 namely, that through the gospel14 the Gentiles are fellow heirs, fellow members15 of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus. 3:7 I became a servant of this gospel16 according to the gift of God’s grace that was given to me by17 the exercise of his power.18 3:8 To me—less than the least of all the saints19—this grace was given,20 to proclaim to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ 3:9 and to enlighten21 everyone about God’s secret plan22—a secret that has been hidden for ages23 in God24 who has created all things. 3:10 The purpose of this enlightenment is that25 through the church the multifaceted wisdom26 of God should now be disclosed to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly realms. 3:11 This was according to27 the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 3:12 in whom we have boldness and confident access28 to God29 because of30 Christ’s31 faithfulness.32 3:13 For this reason I ask you33 not to lose heart because of what I am suffering for you,34 which35 is your glory.36
