From Glory to Glory

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance. - Ephesians 1:18 NIV
God’s vision is for you to inherit your inheritance. God wants us to prosper, to be victorious, to be Christ-like, and to enjoy eternity with Him. It’s a kind of life that’s all yours to have, which will also depend on what choice you will make.
In Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he prays believers will recognize the blessings they have in Christ, namely (1) their future hope, (2) God’s inheritance in the saints, and (3) their “power” in Christ. Paul is not referring to our earthly inheritance, but to God’s inheritance for us. God is looking forward to us to experience the immeasurable greatness of His power—spending eternity with those He saved.
There are a lot of temptations and distractions the enemy has prepared for those who believe in God. The battle will not be easy. Be prepared to be tested. The opponent will not surrender without a struggle. But our hope is in God. He can change us from glory to glory. The power of the living God in Christ defeats all competing authorities.
You are a person of God.
