Verse of the Day (November 1, 2019)

Verse of the Day (November 1, 2019) #BMSeminary – The “heart” refers to the center of one’s mind, will, and spirit. In essence, Paul prays that they will receive spiritual insight regarding three blessings that are theirs: (1) hope. The certain expectation for a glorious future (Rom 5:2-5; Col 1:27) with a cosmos that is united under Christ (Eph 1:9-10); not a hopeful wish, but a confident expectation of what is to come since it is ultimately grounded on God’s faithfulness. See also 4:4. (2) riches of his glorious inheritance. Probably not the believer’s inheritance (v. 14), but God’s inheritance comprising Jewish and Gentile believers. We are his treasured possession (see note on v. 11). (3) incomparably great power . . . mighty strength. Paul uses multiple terms to emphasize the greatness of God’s power that is presently available to believers. (Zondervan Study Bible)
