7 Of this gospel I have become a servant according to
the gift of God’s grace that was given to me by the working
of his power.
8 Although I am
the very least of all the saints, this grace was given to me to
bring to the Gentiles the news of the boundless riches of Christ,
9 and to make
everyone see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in
God who created all things;
10 so that through
the church the wisdom of God in its rich variety might now be made
known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
11 This was in
accordance with the eternal purpose that he has carried out in Christ
Jesus our Lord,
12 in whom we
have access to God in boldness and confidence through faith in him.
