A Great Mystery

Ephesians 3:1. “For this cause, I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,”

I love the humility with which Paul continues his letter to the Ephesians.  He is about to expound on the great mystery of the Church, and he is speaking mostly to Gentile believers.  In the next couple of verses he will establish his authority to teach on this topic, but he starts the section of his letter by putting himself clearly in a position of humility and subjection to Jesus Christ.  He is a willing, thankful prisoner of grace and love.
