Paulines Epistle

Paul, the servant of our Lord Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, appointed to the Gospel of God.
A reading from the Epistle of our teacher Paul to the Ephesians .
May his blessings be upon us.

Ephesians 2 : 19 - 3 : 10

Chapter 2

19Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
20having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
21in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
22in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Chapter 3

1For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles--
2if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you,
3how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already,
4by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ),
5which 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:
6that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel,
7of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power.
8To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
9and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ;
10to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places,

The grace of God the Father be with you all.
