…for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Ephesians 6:20

The words “for which” are speaking of “the mystery of the gospel” which Paul just mentioned. It is for this marvelous message from God, and which speaks of peace between Him and man through the work of Christ, that Paul found himself “an ambassador in chains.”

His words here are an oxymoron, and even a paradox.… Read the rest

…and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, Ephesians 6:19

In the previous verse, Paul had asked for prayer and supplication to be made “for all the saints.” Now he makes a specific, personal, extra request by saying, “and for me.” He felt that he needed their additional and explicit prayers so “that utterance may be given to me.”

He wanted prayers for the very words he would speak, desiring that they would be in accord with his calling and as led by the Spirit.… Read the rest

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; Ephesians 6:17

Paul now admonishes the Christian to “take the helmet of salvation.” Charles Ellicott notes that “There is a break here. We are said not to put on, but to “take” (or rather, receive)—a word specially appropriate to “salvation.”

The Greek word for “salvation” is not what is more commonly used.… Read the rest

…above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Ephesians 6:16

Concerning the “whole armor of God,” Paul continues his list with the words “above all.” The words carry an ambiguity in them and could mean either “over all,” or “in addition to all.” The latter is the proper sense.… Read the rest
