Our Glorious Inheritance

“17 I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your growing knowledge of him, 18 — since the eyes of your heart have been enlightened — so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance in the saints,19 and what is the incomparable greatness of his power toward us who believe, as displayed in the exercise of his immense strength” (Ephesians 1:17-19 NET1).

Second, the wealth, or riches of His glorious inheritance. This is about what we inherit through Jesus. The Greek is a little ambiguous as well as the translations. In verse 13 -14 Paul said, the Holy Spirit was the guarantee of our inheritance. In Romans 8:17 we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. Most people think of this inheritance as something future. I believe we have an inheritance today through the death of Jesus. We have a glorious inheritance. The Holy Spirit is just the down payment. There is more if we will allow our heart eyes to be enlightened.
