Daily Verse: “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” (Matthew 25:34 ESV)
KLERONOMEO (2816): “Be heir, obtain by inheritance. Includes all spiritual good provided through and in Christ, and particularly all that is contained in the hope grounded on the promises of God. The reward of those who have shown kindness to the “brethren” of the Lord in their distress during the tribulation, Mt. 25:34; the kingdom of God, which the morally corrupt cannot “inherit,”[i]
Enjoy the inheritance.
Following Christ means eternal life, starting when you place your faith in Jesus. The moment God’s spirit takes up residence in our hearts, we receive His gifts:
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.” (1 Cor. 12:4-6 ESV)
God’s Spirit enables us to do divine tasks. Our gifts vary as much as our personalities. The closer we follow God, the more we enjoy His peace. Believing in God’s promises applying His principles to our lives will cause our lives to change. Our actions become loving and kind as we trust our Savior more.
If we don’t accept our inheritance, we can’t receive the gift. Trusting Jesus happens with a decision to choose Him. Believe He existed and died for you, rising again, overcoming death. Let God’s Spirit flow into you.
Bear the fruit
Whatever gifts you receive from the Holy Spirit, the fruit remains the same:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23 ESV)
Obtaining your inheritance of God’s spirit allows you to produce fantastic fruit. Trusting Jesus with your life and learning about Him will draw you into a deep relationship with your heavenly Father.
Grab your inheritance today. Place your faith in Jesus. Let God’s Spirit take control of your life.
