Heirs of unsearchable glory!

For our look at the beauties of life in Christ, let's consider all that we inherit when we live in Him. There are literally hundreds of scripture verses which discuss inheritances. Romans 8:17. tells us we are joint-heirs in Christ. 2 Corinthians 8:9 reminds us Christ gave up all the glories of heaven to suffer on earth that we might receive this inheritance.

And what is that inheritance? The great hall of faith chapter (Hebrews 11) outlines some of what we have inherited simply through faith in Jesus Christ! Every piece of our inheritance is a wealth we won't exhaust in all of eternity: the riches of God's grace, the glory of His righteousness, the promises of God, eternal life. It is incomprehensible what Jesus has done for us. So, today, in this time of fear and struggles, share with someone a glimpse of the riches God wants to shower upon them!

Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; (Ephesians 3:8)
