Simply Because

gift

Ephesians 1:11

Ephesians 1:7

Picture yourself in a courtroom listening to a will being read to you by a lawyer.  As you listen, you discover that you have inherited a vast fortune.  All of the wealth that you’ve received is now yours simply because it was in the will of the one who possessed it.  All you have to do is receive what is already yours by inheritance.

Well, the inheritance that we have in Jesus Christ is far greater than anything that we could inherit from anyone here on earth.  Our inheritance is not ours because we are young, old, male, female, educated, uneducated, rich, poor, or for any other human reason.

We are free today from the penalties of sin because we are forgiven through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

Our inheritance is guaranteed simply because we are in Jesus Christ.
