“A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.”
Most grandparents want to leave an inheritance for their children. As much of a blessing as that would be for the family, it can never replace them. However their inheritance is temporal, and can only be enjoyed on earth.
God’s children have a Wiser Inheritance through their knowledge of His Son, Jesus Christ. When we trust Him as Saviour, we obtain an inheritance that cannot be taken away.
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”
If you have received Christ as your Saviour, you have been given the Holy Spirit as the down payment of the inheritance you have waiting for you in Heaven.
1 Peter 1:3-5
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
God purchased us by the blood of Jesus Christ, and we are His children with an eternal inheritance waiting for us!
