In part two of Unsearchable Riches, we continue to study Ephesians chapter 3 where Paul explains how God graciously called him to share with the non-Jewish people the “mystery hidden for all ages but is now brought to light.” This mystery is found in Christ Himself and through Christ the Jews and Gentiles have come together to form one body; His church.
To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things; 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.
