I am a steward

After Ephesians 3:1-13

I am a steward, 
a minister entrusted
with a gift, chosen
to bring the gift,
to bring the light,
to those previously
cut off, walled off.

I am a minister,
not through education
or training or merit
of my own, but only
through the gift
of grace given me.

The task set before me:
to preach those those
previously unreachable,
to bring the gift
into the light for all.

And if I suffer,
it is by grace.
And if I suffer,
do not lose heart.
And if I suffer,
rejoice in the gift
that is yours.
