Praise and Thanksgiving Scripture Study

in the kingdom of light.

Other translations
Giving thanks to the Father,

the saints in light.

giving thanks to the Father
for having made you fit to share
in the inheritance of His
people in the light.

qualified - adequate - trained - instructed - sufficient

inheritance - something from the past that is still important or valuable.

light - illumination - radiance - gleaming

Nelson's Bible Commentary
Believers can never be qualified on their own; instead God must make them sufficient through Jesus Christ. The inheritance is not one we have earned, but is based on being qualified by God.

Phil 1:4
In all my prayers for all of you,
I always pray with joy.
