    Eph 3:7; Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God's grace which was given me by the working of his power..

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    'according to the gift....given...by the working of His power'

    By the working of His power, or in other words, by the manifestation of God Himself.... For God being manifested in one, is the working of His power..

    For it is self evident only God can form Himself in the creature.. The creature can only be a recipient of the power that would form the creatures Creator in the creature...

    For this is what the new birth is, God, the creatures Creator's life, being brought to life in the creature...

    The creature can only be the recipient of such a gift... The creature can only do what Mary did in the forming of Christ in her womb, with a, be it onto me according to your word...

    This is the free gift bestowed in Christ to all those that would be willing to accept such a gift..

    The Gospel being a ministration of the Spirit, or, in other words, the creature being put in possession of the thing the Spirit is ministering....

    Be blessed in being put in possession of the thing...

    In the beloved, Not me

    Dear one,
    The gift of God’s grace that is written in Ephesians 3:7 is Christ Jesus.

    For this is what we have heard:
    But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. -Romans 5:15

    So the free gift of God’s grace is of that one man Jesus Christ.

    You may ask how then apostle Paul was strengthen as minister by the working of His power.

    This is what we have heard:
    that according to the riches of His glory He ( God the Father ) may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, -Ephesians 3:16
    so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith'that you, being rooted and grounded in love, -Ephesians 3:17

    So we understand after apostle Paul have received the free gift of Christ, that he was strengthened as a minister by God the Father who strengthen him through His Spirit.

    Isn't Gods grace free only to those who have faith in Jesus? There is 2 types of faith, believing He exists which even unbelievers have and the other is believing everything He said and trusting that He meant it and doing it. Not a works salvation argument lol
