The Mystery, the Ministry, and Me

Artwork for Becoming a People of Grace: An Exposition of Ephesians

Sometimes it's easy to get discouraged when life dishes out more than our share of troubles. But Paul, who was put in chains for faithfully preaching the gospel wherever he went, could rejoice and rest contentedly in God. He knew that all things that come to us first pass through the hands of God, a fact that gave him great comfort and allowed him to go on preaching the union of the Jews and the Gentiles in Christ. Paul's example and his message provide reason for us to feel secure in God's hands, that we might not suffer discouragement before Him.
