Ephesians 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saint
Colossians 1:23 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
The first text speaks of the glory we have inherited by the adoption as children and heirs through Christ Jesus. This is the glory we experience now, the reason you and I can no longer experience the ordinary but live in the extraordinary which Christ bought for us.
The second text is about an eternal glory, which Christ Himself represents in us. Note however that there needs to be a revealing in both cases. Meaning you need to realize, before you are a full partaker of these two types of glory presented. It is only possible through faith in God, and a realisation to yearn for glory. What are you waiting for?
Talk to God: Father please open the eyes of my understanding in Jesus name. Amen.
