People's Bible Notes for Colossians 1:12

Col 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father. In the midst of the trials which call for patience and long-suffering, still joyful and thankful to the Father that he hath made us fit to be partakers. Fit to have a share. Once, then, they were unfit. Of the inheritance of the saints. God's infinite love had called them to be children, heirs, and joint-heirs with Christ. The heavenly inheritance is meant. To have a share with the saints in light is to be heirs of heavenly felicity. In light. Light is a symbol of purity and blessedness. It is in contrast with darkness in Col 1:13.

This bible verses which i have known in a long time now have been one of my favourites.It empowers to know that we have been "...delivered from the domains of the powers of darkness and bein transferred into the kingdom of his dear son in whom we have redemption.through his blood,even the forgiveness of our sins"what a complete work of REDEMPTION!!! Glory to JEHOVAH. HALLELUYAH!!!
