of which I became a servant, according to the gift of God's grace given to me, according to the working of his power.
To me, the least of all the saints, was given this grace: to proclaim the good news of the fathomless riches of Christ to the Gentiles,
and to enlighten everyone [as to] what [is] the administration of the mystery hidden from the ages by God, who created all [things],
in order that the many-sided wisdom of God might be made known now to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly [places] through the church,
according to the purpose of the ages which he carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord,
in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through faith in him.a13
Therefore I ask [you]b not to be discouraged at my afflictions on behalf of you, which are your glory.
