THE ETERNAL INHERITANCE

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Heb 9:15

That is why he is the one who mediates a new covenant between God and people, so that all who are called can receive the eternal inheritance God has promised them. For Christ died to set them free from the penalty of the sins they had committed under that first covenant.

NLT

One of the strong attributes of the Old Testament covenant is that it was an accurate identifier of sins. It had proper classification for all sins and their due recompenses.

The old covenant gave the devil legal right to afflict those who sinned. The new covenant removes that power from the devil because Jesus has taken our suffering and cleansed us from all our sins.

There is an inheritance God has promised all those who believe in Jesus. God has promised them Himself; He has confirmed this promise by giving us the Holy Spirit. This promise means we will inherit everything in the universe. We are heirs of all things with Christ because we are one with Him as members of His body (see Rom 8:17, Heb 1:2). This promise was first made when God told Abraham that He is Abraham’s shield and exceeding great reward. God’s great reward for Abraham is Himself (see Gen 15:1). God has promised you the greatest thing in the whole universe- He has given you Himself.

As long as you have right standing with God through faith in Christ Jesus, you are a spiritual descendant of Abraham and all Abraham’s blessings are yours (see Gal 3:29). Go into today knowing that you are blessed with all blessings in heavenly places (the spirit realm that controls the physical)

Prayer: thank you heavenly father for loving me with such great love. I pray dear lord that you help me walk worthy of my calling, in Jesus name.
