What is my inheritance in Christ?
By Dr. Charles Stanley
The word inheritance evokes thoughts of money or property handed down from generation to generation, with some special person receiving a legacy from a parent or relative. The heir is granted full benefits and ownership privileges and has gratifying knowledge that he is unique, blessed, chosen for honor in some way.
Not many of us will inherit a vast estate or get a surprise phone call from a wealthy relation. But with Jesus as your Savior, you are already an heir with Him of all God’s immeasurable riches. God the Father gave everything to Jesus, “whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world” (Hebrews 1:2). He is your fullness and abundant supply for every part of your being.
Do you need strength? God has all power and gives energy for every task. Do you lack wisdom? He provides discernment and insight that cuts through even the densest fog of confusion. Are you searching for contentment? Jesus gives you peace beyond human understanding.
A bank account can be depleted; a fortune can dwindle away; houses and property can be taken. But the inheritance you have in Christ is untouchable, unchanging, and inexhaustible.
For the same is Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call upon Him. —Romans 10:12
