WALKING IN THE INHERITANCE – Walking Out What Was Won

March 6, 2013

WALKING IN THE INHERITANCE
Living in the Abundance of Those Who Have Gone Before
Galatians 3

Have you ever heard or read of someone who received an great inheritance from a distant relative? In some cases the person receiving the inheritance may not have even met the relative that was now leaving them this vast source of wealth. To be honest, each time I hear of something like this taking place I immediately, almost involuntarily, think, “Wow, that must be nice. I wish that was me receiving that.”

Ever been there?

To wake up one day to find that you have suddenly inherited a fortune simply from having been born into your family is probably everyone’s dream. Who wouldn’t be overjoyed to find that you can now partake of wealth and riches beyond anything you could have dreamed of all for just being who you are?

Guess what? Great News!

Those of us who know Jesus and make the decision to walk by faith in Him alone have such an inheritance! It is the blessings Jesus purchased for us through His life, sacrifice, death and resurrection. It is contained in salvation, which is awesome in itself. If it was just salvation that was purchased that would truly be more than we could ever hope to have gained in our sinful state. But wait… there is more! We not only gain salvation but we have also gained full access to all the blessings of Abraham, our distant relative.
We see in scripture that Jesus redeemed us so that we can now receive all the blessings of Abraham’s seed. (Vs. 13-14)That means each of us who have chosen to live in the faith realm are now privy to ALL the blessings of Abraham. Jesus opened the door for ‘whosoever will’ to be able to receive the promises that the seed of Abraham have access to.

It is important to remember that just like an earthly inheritance, there are conditions or requirements the recipient must fulfill in order to gain the wealth that is available.
For the ‘Faith Child’ (Believer) the requirement is simple…turn away from all forms of living after the flesh and live completely submitted to the Holy Spirit by Faith. (Vs.5-9) Commit yourself to live in all Jesus shows you to do…even when it seems scary. Remember the ‘the just shall live by faith’ (Rom1:17). Those that believe and walk out this truth now have full access to all the promised of Abraham. (Vs. 26-29) The promises of Abraham are great. We have been give great riches (Gen.13:2); vast lands (Gen. 15:18); Fruitfulness in every area of life (Gen. 17:2-9). Truly, there is no earthly inheritance that can compare with great inheritance that our Savior and gracious Lord have purchased for us. So very awesome!!
This Easter season as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. It is a time to reflect on not just His life and death but, most importantly, His defeat of the grave and all that this brought for those who will believe. I encourage you to take this time to reflect on how much of the inheritance you are currently walking in. There is still opportunity to walk in more! Use this as a time to purpose to walk in all the blessings brought for you through so great a victory.

LIVING A LIFE OF SUPERNATURAL FAITH WILL YEILD SUPERNATURAL RESULTS.
