These are my thoughts, please share yours.

4 The mystery of the gospel is only revealed by seeking yourself, many want to be handed it without seeking this can not be done.

5 Sons of men is just a reference to people. Men were used to reveal knowledge many shared wrong things but the prophets of God shared the truth. The scripture are Spirit breathed, the words are from God.

6 The nations is the Gentiles the non Jews. We can share in Godís blessing thru Christ. Christ is not just for the Jewish people but is for everyone.

7 Paul was given the chance to serve by sharing the gospel and ultimately dying for the gospel after being in prison. The Holy Spirit kept working the Paul if we have the Lord then He will keep working thru us as well. We also have the power of the Holy Spirit and are to serve Him.
