Paul was given the gift of God’s grace…
- Given ‘to me’ – recognize your blessings and be thankful!
- Given to me ‘for you’ – realize why you are blessed!
- Given to me for you ‘from the Lord’ – realize who has blessed you!
For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles— if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you, how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets: that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel, of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power. – Ephesians 3:1-7
