WHO I AM IN CHRIST!
I am one in whom God has an inheritance!
Ephesians 1:17 & 18
I pray...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.
Here's the way that's translated in the Message Bible:
I ask - ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory - to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for Christians, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him - endless energy, boundless strength.
We are HEIRS! What a legacy! Can you beat that? We are saints! Yes you ARE! That means you are holy and set apart for God! Saint ___________ fill in the blank with YOUR name! :-) If you've always wanted to be rich - well, guess what ? - You are! It only gets better! An inheritance is only usually left to one "near and dear! That's you and me! Hallelujah!
Spread the WORD!
