the hope to which He has called you

“…having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,” Ephesians 1:18 (ESV)

To be so “enlightened” such that we know the hope spoken of is incredibly liberating.

A hope that relies not on our own futile attempts to manipulate and coerce our fate.

But rather, rests solely on the providence of a benevolent God.

And as if there was any doubt as to God’s love for His creation, this is the same sovereign creator who is so eager to see us saved that He sacrificed His one and only son (1 Corinthians 5:7) for us.

That we might be heirs of His eternal kingdom (Ephesians 3:6).


prayer : thank God for the hope of eternal life

action : live each day by faith in the knowledge and comfort of God’s promises
