Paul calls himself less that the least of all the saints.  That is true humility.  Do I have that?  Fourteen letters to churches are entered in the New Testament and explain the whole truth of the Gentile church.  According to verse 3 of this chapter Paul got whatever he got by revelation and notice the term the “unsearchable riches of Christ”.  No matter what we think we have , we haven’t got it all. 
Notice Paul says his purpose is to make all men see the following of the mystery hidden in God through the ages now made known.  He calls Christ the Creator of all things.
I notice how Paul puts all these things. What is left for me to do but preach what I know?  The Bible is there to know what I know.  While Paul is saying all these things he is a prisoner in Rome.  I am not confined. For the last 65 years I have had freedom to tell it as it is.  That is not true in China where there could be 300 million Christians or 2000 house churches in North Korea. With our freedom we become a little lazy. Jumping down to verse 14 & 15 Paul says, “I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ from whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named.”
