There are some Christians that exude unflappable confidence in the Lord, and see everything that happens in their lives as a result of his hand. Their instinctive response to all challenges is to trust more and to pray more and to study the word more.
These are enlightened believers, who live each day in and with the power of a risen Lord. They know there is unfailing hope in his calling. They know that they’ve already received their inheritance from him by his grace—these are the original “trust babies.” They know full well the tremendous unsurpassed power by which they will be forever sustained.
Are you there yet? If not, you only believe two-thirds of the gospel, that Jesus came and died.
A living Christ has called us to be illuminated! That’s why Paul is praying for this enlightenment to occur in the Ephesian church.
