Know Your Inheritance in Christ! Day 1 - "As a Child of God, You have An Inheritance!"
Chosen by God!
In order to be an heir you must be a part of the family, either through birth or adoption. In order to inherit someone must die.
Do you know that as a child of God you are an heir with Jesus Christ and you have an inheritance?
Romans 8:14-17 NKJV “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together."
Being led by the Spirit makes us sons/daughters of God. We were adopted into the family. God becomes our “Abba” Daddy Father. As a result we are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. Everything He has we have access to.
Imagine for a moment that you are given an inheritance that meets every need you’ll ever have. Then imagine never fully accessing that inheritance. You put the knowledge of that inheritance on the side, in the closet, out of sight while continuing to struggle.
Have we forgotten our inheritance in Christ?
Is it possible we’ve overlooked, and not considered, the impact of the inheritance on our lives?
Have we partially opened, accessed, the inheritance not realizing there was more available to us?
Galatians 4:4-5 NLT “But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.”
God’s timing – He sent Jesus so we could be adopted into the family.
Not only has God given us an inheritance, He’s given us the ultimate Gift in Jesus Christ. He gave us continuous gifts through Jesus Christ.
John 3:16 AMPC "For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.”
Our eternity is sealed once we believe.
Sometimes we don’t realize what we have access to!
