Our Inheritance!

Our Inheritance!

“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who worked all things after the counsel of His own Will.” Ephesians 1:11

In the real world, an inheritance is a proposed will which is prepared while the owner is still alive, and to be fulfilled or granted when they are dead. Usually, this right transfer of possession is done between parents and children. So, a father always leaves all his hard-earned property as a blessing to his children once he dies.

However, we do not just have our inheritance in Christ because Jesus died; we possess it more because He lives. We do not only have inheritances waiting for us in heaven when we die, but right here on earth, we enjoy the great inheritance of the father while we live.

From the day we accepted Christ, our portal to experience and enjoy divine inheritance got opened. We became the child of God, and we are then eligible for every father-children blessings and inheritance (1 Peter 1:3-4). The inheritance in the form of blessings starts from the forgiveness of sins, enjoying the righteousness of God, enjoying different dimensions of grace, and lots more.

Nevertheless, we cannot say everyone enjoys this full privilege, most importantly, the inheritance of eternal life. It is offered to people who accepted Christ and abide as a true child. It is essential not to misbehave in his sight, as an earthly father can disown a child, anyone can also ignorantly walk away as a child of God. But our heavenly father earnestly desires that we remain in Him till eternity so that we can have our inheritance fully in Him.

Colossians 3:23-24 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with your whole being, for the Lord and not for men, because you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as your reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”

Prayer:
Lord, I pray that you help equip us to do and abide in you. We do not want to be lost sheep, help us to receive our inheritance in you.
