tasting on earth our heavenly inheritance

God, according to your promise
you have given your Holy Spirit to us your people,
that we might know the freedom of your children
and taste on earth our heavenly inheritance;
let us always maintain the unity he gives,
and living in his power
be your witnesses to all men;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Ephesians 1:11-14

In him we have obtained an inheritance,
having been predestined according to the purpose of him
who works all things according to the counsel of his will,
so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.
In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation,
and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,
who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it,
to the praise of his glory.
