C. The Mystery of God's Economy
24 I now arejoice in my sufferings on your behalf and 1fill up on my part that which is lacking of the bafflictions of Christ in my flesh for His cBody, which is the church;
25 Of 1which I became a 2aminister according to the 3bstewardship of God, which was given to me for you, to 4complete the cword of God,
26 The 1amystery which has been hidden 2from the ages and from the generations but now has been manifested to His saints;
27 To whom God willed to make known what are the 1ariches of the glory of this bmystery among the Gentiles, 2which is 3cChrist 4in you, the dhope of 5eglory,
28 Whom we announce, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom that we may present every man 1afull-grown 2in Christ;
29 For which also I labor, 1astruggling according to His boperation which operates in me in 2power.
