TEXT: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance…(Ephesians 1: 11)
Many people do not have the least inkling on what they are entitled to when they come into the kingdom of God. Many think it is only just about being born again and settling down in a church as a member ; but it is much more than that. Our new status in Christ confers on us a glorious inheritance. Apart from receiving eternal life into our spirits and having peace with God, we become members of the family of God, He becomes our father and we His children, and like Paul would say in his epistle to the Romans ” And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ ….That is who you are now in Christ! You cease becoming an ordinary helpless person when you receive Christ. You become a heir of God entitled to make claims and receive your due portions of His rich inheritance. The great God who made the planets, galaxies and all the beautiful things of life becomes your father, and as his child every thing that He is and has also belongs to you. You can use his name and enjoy Goodwill. You can also make claim and enjoy all of His propriety rights.
There is nothing more pathetic than a person who does not know his /her worth; that person will wander in the congregation of the dead as a beast(Psalm 49:12, 20)
God has rich benefits that accrues to you on a daily basis. But a good knowledge and understanding of your glorious inheritance is what will determine your continuous enjoyment of your portion of this glorious inheritance.
