If we are in Christ, then we are Abraham seed and therefore an heir. What did we inherit?
1. We are a member of the Body of Christ, a great nation. We have brothers and sisters in Africa, Asia, South America and all around the world. We inherited an international family. (Genesis 12:2)
2. We are blessed to be a blessing. God has equipped us with every spiritual blessing. (Genesis 12:3)
3. We are free from the oppression of the enemy. Jesus express indignation that a daughter of Abraham had been oppressed with an evil spirit for 18 years. (Like 13:15, 16)
4. We inherited freedom from the law.(Colossians 2:14-16)
5. We inherited a Spirit of Adoption. We are no longer servants, keeping a list of do’s and dont’s. We are children, sons and daughters, led by the voice of a loving Father. (Romans 8:15)
6. We inherited resurrection power so that we can do what our elder brother, Jesus, did when he walked on earth. (I John 4:17b)
7. We inherited authority, the ability to evict Satan from our lives and others. (Mark 16:17)
8. We inherited the best retirement plan ever – a life in heaven. (John 3:16)
A great price was paid for our inheritance. Let us walk in it fully, taking advantage of all that Jesus died to give us. We are heirs. Let us act like who we are!
“If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Galatians 3:29 NIV
