Over the next few weeks I am going to spend time discovering what we have inherited, now that we are sons and daughters of God. There are things that are rightfully ours that we can claim. And unless we claim them and step into them we may never experience what God has given to us.
12 Your hearts can soar with joyful gratitude when you think of how God made you worthy to receive the glorious inheritance freely given to us by living in the light
18 I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination,[i] flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling[j]—that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones!
I truly believe there is so much God has for us that we simple don’t KNOW about or fear (unbelief) has cause us not to take advantage of.
Listen to these powerful words from the Apostle Peter…
3 Everything we could ever need for life and complete devotion[a] to God has already been deposited in us by his divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing him who has called us by name and invited us to come to him through a glorious manifestation of his goodness.[b] 4 As a result of this, he has given you[c] magnificent promises[d] that are beyond all price, so that through the power of these tremendous promises[e] you can experience partnership[f] with the divine nature, by which you have escaped[g] the corrupt desires that are of the world.
Are you beginning to catch it? When God gave us Jesus, everything He has came with Him. EVERYTHING!!!
