Ready for that inheritance?
We look back and wish we came from royalty. We hope there was someone special in our families that played a big role in this world. We know our last name has meaning and we want to know that meaning. We are all searching for who we are and where we came from.
Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. He is our Father. He is our inheritance. He has given us life and not only life, but an inheritance with Him. In Him we can find forgiveness, Salvation, and redemption. I found this verse as I was studying yesterday and it just stirred my heart. I am searching for family, for who I am, and where I came from, but really, in Him, I can find all I am just in who He is!
In this verse it holds who I am through Christ. I am adopted into His love, His family. He is my inheritance. I am an heir to His throne! I am His princess. He is my King!! I have to look no further. There is no greater inheritance. I don't have to look for my name in any great book of a long list of kings and lords.
Search beyond your heart for who you are and Christ will show you who you are through Him. He has given us life. A promised future in Him. That is more than any castle or gold can offer. He can bring pure joy. Where can you find your inheritance? Pick up His word, search those pages, those names, those hearts open wide for us to see. Paul? He is there right along with Peter. This is your family. This is my family. Our history is still being written. But we can look back through the pages of His love letter He has written just for us and see He thought about us from the very beginning. Give your life to the Savior today and you too can find your inheritance lasting.
