13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.Colossians 1:13-14 (NASB)
These verses are a portion of Paul’s prayer for the Colossian church. In it, he encourages them to give joyful thanks to God the Father. Reminding them that they were rescued by God, from the domain of darkness, from the bondage to sin, and delivered them into the kingdom of light.
12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[b] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.Colossians 1:12 (NASB)
The kingdom of light; is the kingdom of God’s beloved Son, Jesus. Through Jesus’ death on the cross, we are redeemed from the power of sin and death and have confidence in our eternal destiny. ⁂
Have you embraced the truth and light of Jesus? Are you rescued are, your sins redeemed?
Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we are in awe of Your love, grace, and mercy. Thank you for sending Your Son, Jesus, to rescue us from our sins. Let us shine with Your light and spread Your Word. Like the cardinal plant glows in the sunlight, teach us to glow with your light and shine it into the darkness. In Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen

Reading these verse remind me that He rescued and He transferred us so that we can inherit the kingdom. Truly what a wonderful gift. I sometimes feel we do not entirely grasp the magnitude of it all. May this verse fill us with gratitude and humility.
Love these verses you pick and bring to our attention Jeanne.

I’m so much in love with the fact that we all qualify to share in the kingdom of light. I like to compare it to taking up a course in the university where we have to meet specific standards to be taken in. God’s arms are open to receive anyone; no qualification required. It’s truly amazing.
