Ephesians 3:5-6 In former generations this mystery was not made known to humankind, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the sprit: that is, the Gentiles have become fellow heirs, members of the same body, and sharers in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
Paul goes on to say that it is up to the church to carry on this mystery of expansive reconciliation between God and people. In other words, we are not the executors of God’s grace, merely objects of mercy who receive the benefits of it.
