May you know the
Of His glorious
In the saints. (Eph. 1:18)
In Christ, you are rich.
Not with the toys and trinkets
That masquerade for real wealth.
You have been given
The deep treasure—
The limitless spiritual inheritance
That should have been reserved for Christ alone.
I bless you to know the riches–
To perceive the share of glory deposited in you.
May the eyes of your heart be enlightened
To behold the vast inheritance that you share
Amongst the saints.
No reason to live as a spiritual pauper
Unaware of the treasure that has been secured for you!
Have you deserved the joy and peace of Christ?
Have you earned the timeless rewards of grace?
Have you warranted the sweet presence of the Spirit?
No—all of it is unmerited.
Undeserved. Unearned. Unwarranted.
So, live strong in the joy of such a gift today.
