Our Inheritance - October 25, 2016

When you were born into Christ, you were placed in God’s royal family.  And since you are a part of the family, you have access to the family blessings. All of them. Scripture says, “In Him also we have obtained an inheritance” (Ephesians 1:11 NIV).

Surprised? You ain’t heard nuttin’ yet! The apostle Paul described the value of your portfolio: “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” (Romans 8:16-17 NIV)We are joint heirs with Christ. We share the same inheritance as Christ! We don’t inherit leftovers. We don’t wear hand-me-downs. In the traditions of Paul’s day, the firstborn son received a double portion while the rest of the siblings divvied up the remainder. Not so in the family of Christ. His portion is our portion! Whatever he has, we have!
