How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

Ephesians 3:1-13

My Sermon Notes from October 8, 2017 Full Text:Ephesians 3:1-13

1因此,我保羅——為你們外邦人做了基督耶穌被囚的,替你們祈禱。2諒必你們曾聽見神賜恩給我,將關切你們的職分託付我,3用啟示使我知道福音的奧祕,正如我以前略略寫過的。4你們念了,就能曉得我深知基督的奧祕。5這奧祕在以前的世代沒有叫人知道,像如今藉著聖靈啟示他的聖使徒和先知一樣。6這奧祕就是外邦人在基督耶穌裡,藉著福音,得以同為後嗣,同為一體,同蒙應許。7我做了這福音的執事,是照神的恩賜,這恩賜是照他運行的大能賜給我的。8我本來比眾聖徒中最小的還小,然而他還賜我這恩典,叫我把基督那測不透的豐富傳給外邦人,9又使眾人都明白,這歷代以來隱藏在創造萬物之神裡的奧祕是如何安排的,10為要藉著教會,使天上執政的、掌權的現在得知神百般的智慧。11這是照神從萬世以前在我們主基督耶穌裡所定的旨意。12我們因信耶穌,就在他裡面放膽無懼,篤信不疑地來到神面前。13 所以,我求你們不要因我為你們所受的患難喪膽,這原是你們的榮耀。

1For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles—2 Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets. 6 This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.7 I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power. 8 Although I am less than the least of all the Lord’s people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the boundless riches of Christ, 9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. 10 His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, 11 according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. 13 I ask you, therefore, not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory.

(以弗所書Ephesians 3:1-13)
