Now I rejoice1 in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions,2 for the sake of his body, which is the church.325
I have become its servant4 by the commission God gave me5 to present to you the word of God6 in its fullness--
the mystery7 that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints.
To them God has chosen to make known8 among the Gentiles the glorious riches9 of this mystery, which is Christ in you,10 the hope of glory.
We proclaim him, admonishing11 and teaching everyone with all wisdom,12 so that we may present everyone perfect13 in Christ.
To this end I labor,14 struggling15 with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.16
