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).
Heir simply means a legally born child who is the rightful owner of all that belong to the father in life. Every Christian is the rightful heir of God’s inheritance 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. 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 the rightful heir of God’s inheritance in life. Hence, whoever receives Jesus Christ as Lord and personal Savior in life; he absolutely becomes 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.” David knew by experience the role of a shepherd to the sheep in life. 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. Therefore, whoever allows God to become his Shepherd automatically becomes an heir of His inheritance in life. Every Christian should remember vividly that God is his Shepherd because he is the rightful heir to His kingdom in life. A life that is devoid of the Master Shepherd in life is absolutely a life that is lived without purpose and direction 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, a Christian was made qualified to be partakers of God’s inheritance by the grace of God in his life. Also, through the mercy of God in Christ Jesus, a Christian became qualified as heir to God’s inheritance in life. Therefore, a life that is lived without Jesus Christ is absolutely a life lived in total vanity in life forever.
Daily Tip: It is a great privilege and opportunity in life for a Christian to be made a rightful heir to God’s inheritance in Christ Jesus 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).
