Colossians 1:11–14

"We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins."
In this world, we run short of patience and endurance. These are plentiful with God, however. We have an inheritance from him—access to all his power, for he purchased our freedom himself. For this we are to always thank the Father. We live now in the light, not in darkness. If anything is dark in your life, ask God to shed his light on it. Our heritage is light; we are no longer in the dark kingdom. Claim your inheritance of the light of life!
