II. THE SAINTS ARE GATHERED TO AN INHERITANCE
The all of verse 10 is changed to the we of verse 11. For the saints, the purpose of God is an inheritance. Notice that we have obtained an inheritance.
1. Legally, we possess all of it. It is ours, made over to us. Acts 26:18. You are an heir of the kingdom of God, Rom 8:17; Col 1:12; 1 Peter 1:3-5.
2. Experimentally, we have entered upon the enjoyment of it. 1 Cor 1:22; 2 Cor 5:5; Eph 1:14. The blessed Holy Spirit and the grace He supplies is the pledge of our inheritance.
3. Eternally and fully we will one day enter upon it. Rev 21:1-2.
