Our Inheritance - July 20, 2016

Scripture says, “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:16-17).

If we are heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, why do we struggle through life? Our inheritance is perfect peace, yet we feel like a perfect mess. God promises to meet every need, yet we worry and fret. Why?  We don’t know about our inheritance. It’s what Paul refers to in the Book of Ephesians as “the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe” (1:19). Some Christians never live out of their inheritance because they don’t know they have one. But now you do!

There is a reason for your redemption. God brought you out so he could lead you in. He set you free so he could raise you up. The gift has been given. You are an heir of God and co-heir with Christ. Will you trust your inheritance?

From God is With You Every Day
