Scripture: Ephesians 1:13-14
Ephesians 1:13-14 says, “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.” This tells us that Jesus in His death, burial and resurrection bought and paid for an inheritance for us. That inheritance takes several forms. In Christ we have an amazing inheritance. In the natural we may receive an inheritance from a relative at their death. We attend the reading of the will and discover what that inheritance was. How many people who were just informed they had an inheritance would blow it off and not attend the reading of the will, especially if it was suspected to be substantial? If we were informed of a substantial inheritance, chances are we would show up for the reading of the will. It would be a priority to discover the magnitude of the inheritance. How many Christians have a Bible full of a magnanimous inheritance and yet never spend any time reading it. I am amazed at this yet we see it all the time. We can never know the fullness if we don’t read and nourish ourselves with the truths of our will. There is an Old Testament will and a New Testament will. An inheritance is spotlighted in both. Think about the craziness of having an inheritance and being informed that it was substantial and not bothering to find out about it. How many of those people are we going to meet on judgment day?
