We have also received an inheritance in Christ. We were destined by the plan of God, who accomplishes everything according to his design. We are called to be an honor to God’s glory because we were the first to hope in Christ. You too heard the word of truth in Christ, which is the good news of your salvation. You were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit because you believed in Christ. The Holy Spirit is the down payment on our inheritance, which is applied toward our redemption as God’s own people, resulting in the honor of God’s glory.
–Ephesians 1:11-14 (CEB)
God of wisdom, you open doors for us and invite us through on faith. But too often, we choose comfort over calling. Help us be open door people. By your grace, instill in us the faith we need to step across the threshold, ready or not. We pray in the name of Jesus, who walks before us and beside us. Amen.
