Ephesians 3 – vs.1-6 – By revelation of God through His apostles and prophets, the mysteries of Christ are being revealed to the Gentiles. “That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel.” We receive all the gifts of God by the gospel.
vs.7-13 – We are made ministers of the gospel by the grace of God. We preach the unsearchable riches of Christ, that all men may partake, having fellowship with Jesus in his kingdom.
vs.11 – “According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” The plans of salvation were from the beginning, Jesus always knew what he was going to do, to die for us.
vs.12 – “In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.” In the old covenant only the High Priest could come before God once a year and only if he had made a sacrifice and repented of his sins. But we have a High Priest that has made it possible for each of us to go before God at any time.
vs.14-21 – Second Prayer – Rev.2:1-7.
