Glory to God (Eph. 3:21)

“To God

Be glory

In the church

And in Christ Jesus

To all generations,

Forever and ever.

Amen.”

αὐτῷ ἡ δόξα ἐν τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ καὶ ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ εἰς πάσας τὰς γενεὰς τοῦ αἰῶνος τῶν αἰώνων· ἀμήν.

Paul said, “To God be glory (αὐτῷ ἡ δόξα) in the church (ἐν τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ) and in Christ Jesus (καὶ ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ) to all generations (εἰς πάσας τὰς γενεὰς), forever and ever (τοῦ αἰῶνος τῶν αἰώνων).  Amen (ἀμήν).”  Paul then ended this section with a prayer to God with a strong Hebrew amen that means let it be so.  Paul wanted to give glory to God for his church community in Jesus Christ forever and ever to all generations.  Paul often spoke of giving glory to God, a common theme.  This was accomplished in his church and Jesus Christ.  This was not only now but in future generations to come.  Do you give glory to God?
