18 I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. — Ephesians 1:18
We have access to all wisdom and revelation. Having access to something does not mean that you already have it. Access means we have the right to enter into a particular building or room. In the computing world, it can mean that we have the right to obtain and examine a file. I think this definition fits the passage here. So, having that right, we need to enter into studying and examining God’s Word. As we do that, God gives us more wisdom and revelation. As we receive that, the eyes of our hearts are enlightened. In other words, we have a deeper understanding of the blessed hope that God has called us to receive. We have access to that same resurrection power that was exhibited when God raised Jesus from the dead. It is freely given to us, because God loved His Son and made Him the head of the church. We, as Christians are all a part of the body of Christ. So this wisdom, revelation, and power flows from the head to the body. Jesus gives it to each of us in proportion to the call He has placed on us. It is a free gift, it is not something you can work to earn. We must walk humbly before our God.
