the riches of His glorious inheritance

“…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)

What is it we’re inheriting?

What are these riches?

Life. Eternal life!

An eternal relationship with our Father in heaven.

And a glorious relationship at that.

Shared with our brothers and sisters in Christ. The “saints” Paul so often refers to in his letters (Romans 1:7).

It’s this promise, this “hope”, we can look forward to.

Yet it’s also a reality now (John 17:3).


prayer : thank you for adopting me as your child (Galatians 4:7)

action : that I would live like these riches are here and now, not just in the future
