Psalm 16:5 (NLT) Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine. 6 The land you have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance!

We are heirs of God. We have an inheritance, even if no wealthy family member left us material things in a will. Jesus gained our provision through His life, self-sacrifice, and blood covenant. Since an inheritance can only be transferred after the death of the benefactor, Jesus died in order to transfer the provisions of His inheritance to us. He then rose from the dead to oversee the distribution of our new covenant provisions and responsibilities!

Romans 8:16, The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

Ephesians 1:18, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

God has given all believers an inheritance through Jesus Christ. We receive it through our godly family heritage, through our understanding of God's kingdom, and through our personal faith in God. We should be focused on receiving and living within the benefits and responsibilities of all that God has given us. We receive our inheritance, not only for personal benefit, but for the benefit of others and for those who follow us.

There is no good reason to live below your inheritance and privileges in Christ. Why should your inheritance go unclaimed and unrealized? You need your inheritance because it is designed to be shared and passed along. The Lord is your inheritance. He maintains your lot, or your part of the inheritance.
