Note Paul’s words in Ephesians 3:7-12:
“I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power. Although I am less than the least of all God’s people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.”
Here is the part I would like to emphasize: “to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery.” To preach and to make plain. That is our reason for being.
