. . . always thanking the Father, who has enabled you—qualified and made us fit—to share the inheritance that belongs to God’s people . . .
Of course we should give honor to our Father . . . it is beyond amazing what he has accomplished and provided for us! He has enabled us—He has qualified and made us fit to inherit his kingdom!
We didn’t do anything to earn it or achieve it for ourselves—he did it all!
The Father has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and dominion of darkness
— he has rescued us from the power of darkness
— and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love—think of it! He has given us citizenship in another country—a country for which we are now ambassadors!
— re-established us in the kingdom of his beloved Son.
That is utterly amazing!!!!
