12 Giving thanks [eucharisteo] unto the Father [pater], which [ho] hath made [hikanoo] us [hemas] meet [hikanoo] to [eis] be partakers [meris] of the inheritance [kleros] of the saints [hagios] in [en] light [phos]: KJV-Interlinear
12 giving thanks to the Father,
who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. NASB
is given to the Father,
not to God as a general term, but specifically to the Father, as He is
distinguished from the Son and from the Spirit.
It is said in the
scriptures that the Father is the author of the divine plan.It is the Father who has sent the Son as a
redeemer such that all who believe in Him (the Son) will become joint heirs or
inheritors of the kingdom to come, which will belong to the Son.
This is language of accommodation
so that we can understand our role in life.
There are two kingdoms

The language is such
that God is worthy, God is the one who accomplished this whole agenda, and God
is the one who deserves the full credit for everything that is.Not man.
No person can earn or
deserve credit of any sort for anything.
Who we are, what we
are, what we possess, what our circumstances are, everything about us, comes
from God, never from us.
Don t even be too presumptuous
about your accomplishments, because it is God who placed all of the right things
in their place, in history, so that you could or can accomplish whatever it is
that you accomplish in life.You might
want to ponder that one for a bit.
From worthless dust to
joint heir of the universe is certainly something to be thankful for, one would
