In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
Note 20 at Eph 1:11: This inheritance is one of the blessings Paul mentioned earlier in Eph 1:3. This inheritance is ours now. It includes everything that belongs to Christ, because we are joint-heirs with Him (Ro 8:17). Although we won't see the fullness of this inheritance until Christ personally takes the reins of government (Re 11:15), we can pray for things to be done here on earth as they are in heaven (Mt 6:10). As much as we can release our faith, we can enjoy our inheritance now.
