Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan. (Ephesians 1:11)
Because we are united with Christ, we are delivered from the scheme of the evil one to destroy us. We have received an inheritance from God! In a lifetime one could never fathom the wealth contained in these words. Recipients of this divine inheritance will never fully comprehend the depths of this phrase, only marvel at the generosity of God the giver. What is the proper response for such a gift? What else but, gratefulness, thankfulness, and complete devotion to him as he leads us through his plan.
With a grateful and humble heart this morning I worship you, Lord of life and giver of the best gifts. Amen.
“And don’t let us yield to temptation.”
