DAY 20 MONDAY: APRIL 2020

YOU ARE THE HEIR OF GOD’S INHERITANCE!

Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ (Galatians 4:7).

Every Christian is the rightful heir of God’s inheritance in life. The word, “Heir” simply means the rightful child of the father who is supposed to be the rightful owner of his father’s properties legally in life. Everything that God owns is yours because you are no longer a slave but a rightful heir to God’s kingdom in life. That is why a Christian is rich in Christ Jesus in life. You can never be broke in life because all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). The Bible says in the opening text that therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is indeed the heir of God’s inheritance in life forever.

This was the notion that David, the little shepherd boy had in mind that made him to declare boldly in Psalm 23:1 thus, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Therefore, if God becomes one’s Shepherd, he can never lack any good thing in life no matter the situations and challenges. David knew by experience the role of a shepherd to the sheep. The life of a sheep is in the hand of the shepherd; hence, the shepherd determines the well-being and survival of the sheep in life. God is your Shepherd because you are indeed the rightful heir to His kingdom in life. Therefore as the rightful heir to His kingdom, all things that He owns belong to you legally by rights and privileges in life forever.

It is a great privilege and opportunity for you to be made the rightful heir of God’s inheritance in life. You never merit nor deserve it in anyway; but you obtain it by His grace in your life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Colossians 1:12, “Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.” In fact, it is absolutely only God who can qualify a Christian to be a rightful heir to His inheritance in life. Of course, every Christian should take note of the fact that the rights and privileges of an heir were bequeathed to him through the grace of God Almighty in life.  Through the mercy of God in Jesus Christ, you became qualified as heir to God’s inheritance in life forever.

Daily Tip: It is a great privilege and opportunity in life for you to be made a rightful heir to God’s inheritance in Christ Jesus in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will (Ephesians 1:11).
