We are God's Inheritance

Bible Verses

Eph 1:18 The eyes of your heart having been enlightened, that you may know... what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 2 Cor 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels....

Words of Ministry

Although we have been made God's inheritance for His enjoyment already, we need to ask ourselves whether or not we live as God's inheritance. We should not stop with the mere objective teaching about being the inheritance of God. Many years ago I was taught that we are God's inheritance, and I was very happy to hear this. Eventually, however, I discovered that I am nothing but clay. It seemed absurd that clay could be God's inheritance. In ourselves we certainly are not worthy to be God's inheritance. After much experience and study of the new Testament, I learned that we are still in the process of becoming God's inheritance. It is by having God wrought into us that we are being constituted into an inheritance. God is still working Himself into us today. Most of us are part clay and part gold. The part that is gold is God's inheritance. I thank God that as the process of being made God's inheritance goes on, the gold in us is increasing and the clay is decreasing. When this process has been completed, we shall be fully the inheritance of God not only objectively, but also experientially.
