Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Colossians 1:11-12 KJV
God’s work in us qualifies us to be joint heirs with Christ.
This should fill us with unspeakable joy and thankfulness. Especially as we come to realize that it is all His doing.
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done . . .”
