Topic: Believers’ Inheritance
Bible Text: Genesis 25:1-11
Key Verse: “And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac” (Genesis 25:5).
MESSAGE: A rich man had only one child and many servants. He appointed a favoured servant among his numerous servants as the captain over all other servants, and put all his inheritance under the care of this servant. While on his dying bed, he invited his only child and asked him to pick just one thing out of all his inheritance. The young man, after much reflection, decided to pick the favoured servant. He was convinced that once he chose the favoured servant, he had inherited all his father’s riches.

From the text today, we see how Abraham wisely settled his house before he passed on to glory. While he gave gifts to other children, he gave all that he had unto Isaac, through whom the Abrahamic covenant was to be fulfilled. He knew that, “Proverbs 13:22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children…” (Proverbs 13:22). Jesus is the only Son of God and He is the sum-total of God’s riches. We can now inherit the riches of God the Father, through His Son Jesus Christ, in whom we have obtained an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled. Jesus is the only Gateway through which we can have unrestricted access to the riches of God.
To be a partaker of God’s inheritance through Christ, a sinner needs to confess and forsake his sins and plead for forgiveness. Grace is offered commonly to all mankind regardless of race and status. GRACE is God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. You need this grace to make your life here on earth worthwhile and in the life to come, everlasting joy. You can appropriate this grace into your life now and become a member of God’s family, heir of the Father and joint-heir with the Son.
Thought for the day: Family inheritance is meant for children of the family, not strangers.
