Colossians 1:12” giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light”
the thought that our Father has not just welcomed us into His Kingdom, but has qualified us is amazing. In other words, what Paul is saying is that at one time we were not qualified.
To not be qualified is almost an unheard thought to my generation. We have been told since we were little that we were good and could do anything. Paul through inspiration of the Holy Spirit says, “not true”. We had to be rescued, saved and qualified by God, through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. And He did it!!
That is grace, that God demands and supplies what is needed to stand in joy and peace in His presence.
