New Living Translation (NLT)
11 Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.
12 God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God.
13 And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.
14 The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.
Children of Inheritance
Our Father’s oh so very good
He blesses us beyond our dreams
He wraps us up in salvation
And by His blood He does redeem
He comes when we’re in trouble
He stands and knocks upon the door
And His wish that is above all things
Is for us to be fully healed and restored
And when we open up that door
And we invite Him to come in
He gives us an inheritance
A life that never ends
And not just endless days to come
It’s far better than any of our plans
We get to walk throughout eternity
With Him holding our unworthy hands
