Preaching the Gospel: “So Great a Favour”

Charles Hodge commenting on Ephesians 3.10:

If, then, it is through the church God designs specially to manifest to the highest order of intelligence his infinite power, grace, and wisdom, the church, in her consummation, must be the most glorious of his works. Hence preaching the gospel, the appointed means to this consummate end, was regarded by Paul as so great a favour: ‘To me, less than the least, was this grace given.’
