    Ephesians 3:7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Acts 9:15 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel. Jesus is my God who chosen Paul to teach us Gentiles in this Church age of Grace. We must read.

    Bro. Ray; It was not the "secret of Paul" or Paul's Gospel! The announced Glad Tidings of Jesus Christ was given in charge to ALL of God's servants: "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us BY HIS SON..." Paul is not your Saviour, but a minister of the LORD! We must seek God and obey ALL HIS WORDS!
  • Ray321
    Ephesians 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, We should all share the secret of Paul, The GOSPEL.
