The Certainty and Nature of our Inheritance

We commit our lives to what Christ has purchased for us even when we do not see the precise form of the gift. Our sonship remains mysterious in accordance with the Spirit’s motions. If we did see we would be able to say we know the unknown, and then we would have nothing to hope for. Faith is concerned with things we hope for and the resources of the exalted Christ are of distinct and immovable significance.

Our interest

Since we are connected personally with Christ in glory – we died with him, rose with him, and are seated with him – our desires ought to be focused on his possessions in their primary essence.


You were raised from death with Christ. So live for what is in heaven, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God.

Colossians 3:1
Christ’s glorious riches are for strengthening us in our inner being.
Every need of the believer gets attention out of Christ’s glorious riches.
The purpose of the Christ Event is to make known His glorious riches to the Gentile world.
It is impossible to find an inheritance that is not the personal property of the Lamb of God.

It is a demonic lie that offers people everything their hearts desire.  Even if one had evidence of having a perfect delight in the Lord our hearts ought to be in sync with his heart. He is not unaware of our mundane needs – as our daily prayers should alert us – but we can do  better than to show ourselves as imitators  of the Gentile world by seeking things for our biological eexistence: food, drink and clothing.
