For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles. Ephesians 3:1
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord. Ephesians 4:1
Paul was chained in a Roman prison but instead of complaining he recognized himself as being a prisoner—not of the Roman emperor but of Christ—the one anointed by God. In whatever circumstances we may find ourselves, praise God, we are on the winning side. —David Croudace

Does His successive journeys run.
His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more. —Isaac Watts
