MAKE YOUR CLAIM ;
(There’s An Inheritance For You In Christ) ;
TO THE BIBLE Acts 20:32 NIV
“Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”
As Ken and Adrian walked home after school, they admired the houses in their new neighbourhood. “Check out those three lovely houses on that lot!” Adrian pointed out. “I heard Mr. Luxemberg inherited them from his Grandpa.”
“They’re so beautiful!” Ken replied, “This reminds me that, as God’s kids, we have a glorious inheritance in Christ Jesus!”
This truth about our inheritance is what Paul communicates in Ephesians 1:11 where he tells us “…we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.” There’s an inheritance for every child of God (Colossians 1:12), and the Word of God delivers your inheritance into your hands.
Understand that satan would try to stop you from possessing that which belongs to you; but, through the Word of God, you can stand your ground and take full possession of all that is yours! This is why Proverbs 11:9 says, “…through knowledge the righteous will be delivered.” By this, it means that as you study and meditate on the Word, not only will you discover your inheritance in Christ, you’ll also begin to relate with and enjoy everything God has made available to you in Christ Jesus.
Hebrews 9:15; 1 Peter 1 :3-4
Blessed heavenly Father, I thank you for qualifying me to become a partaker of the glorious inheritance of the saints in light! I declare that my understanding is enlightened today, to know what the hope of your calling is, and to understand the riches of the glory of your inheritance for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
