God favored us, not because of anything we did but because of Who He is.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, 9 not of works, so that no one should boast.
This inheritance has not been received by everyone. Only those who have received Christ. It is in Christ that we obtained this inheritance. There is no other way to get it.
Here is how scripture describes those who have received this inheritance in Ephesians 1:13-And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.
People of God the moment we heard the Gospel and the Lord opened our heart to believe it, we were included in the inheritance.
Romans 8;16-17-The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirits that we are the children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs: heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified with Him.
As those who have received the inheritance by faith through Christ Jesus, whatever Christ inherits, we inherit too as the adoption of God through Christ Jesus.
People of God, we have an internal inheritance to look forward too. Remember, our present suffering is not to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us when Christ returns.
An eternal "INHERITANCE"! Good God Almighty! This is the lot for the believer in eternity! It was worked for our good by God on our behalf. He predestined it to be so. THANK YOU LORD!
People of God, we have an "INHERITANCE' in Christ Jesus!
God bless you all people of God.
