Day 8 | The Inheritance Mindset – "Who I Am In Christ" Firm Foundation 21-Day Devotional

Friday, October 08, 2021 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

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.

God has given believers an inheritance through Jesus Christ. We receive it through our understanding of God's kingdom and through faith in God. You should focus on receiving and living within the benefits and responsibilities of all that God has given to you, not only in the “sweet by and by” but here and now. You receive inheritance, not only for personal benefit, but for the benefit of others and for those who follow you.

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. Your present day inheritance includes practical things such as, peace of mind, joy in every situation, wisdom to solve problems, wisdom for your health, wisdom to help guide others, provision, and much more. In fact, “every good and perfect gift” (James 1:17) comes from the Lord as an inheritance.

You live under the blessing of Abraham, which was not only for Hebrews.

Galatians 3:14, He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

Look at what God promised Abram (who became Abraham, “Father of nations”) Genesis 12:2

1. Bless you
2. Bless your family
3. Bless others through you
4. Bless those who bless you

Through our faith in Christ, we are also heirs of Abraham's inheritance and blessings. We carry forward these same blessings and responsibilities, through Christ, to bless our family generation.

Have an “inheritance mindset.” That's how you building a legacy.

Reflection Questions:
1. What does it mean to be a joint-heir with Christ?
2. What are examples of inheritance provided to you?
3. How can your inheritance help others?
