Spirit of Sonship Part III

Spirit of Sonship Part III

In the last blog, we have seen about an heir. In this blog, we will see about inheritance.


Before understanding Inheritance lets us understand the word Inherit.

Inherit: Receive (money, property, or a title) as an heir at the death of the previous holder.  (Wikipedia)

As we all know the heir of God's Kingdom is Jesus and He died on the cross so that first will can be accomplished.
Spirit of Sonship

For where a will is, there must also of necessity be the death of the maker. For a will is in force after men are dead: otherwise, it is of no strength at all while the maker lives.
 Hebrews 9:16,17(KJV).

God want to give us Inheritance. This HE has achieved by sending HIS only begotten Son Jesus Christ, and those who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior HE make them partakers of HIS divine Kingdom.

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. Acts 20:32 (KJV)

For this reason, God appointed Paul as his disciple to open the eyes of the gentiles and let them have an inheritance in the Heavenly Kingdom.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. 
Acts 26:18 (KJV)

When we think from an earthly perspective we think that the inheritance will be here on this earth only. But that’s not true this inheritance is bigger than what we imagine this is in Heaven which is incorruptible.

To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
 1 Peter 1:4 (KJV)

Also, this inheritance will be eternal. Eternal that is what Jesus talked about many time having eternal life. This eternal life simply doesn't mean an ordinary life but a Royal Life in His Kingdom. 

 And for this cause, he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 
Hebrews 9:15(KJV)

Saints in Christ becomes light in the firmament. 

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Colossians 1:12 (KJV)

God want to give us Reward i.e. Inheritance

Spirit of Sonship

Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
Colossians 3:24 (KJV)

Our aim should be to inherit the Kingdom what Lord has kept for us. Because we all are Sons of God.
