“I pray… that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.”

Ephesians 1:18 (NLT)

 


 

POWERFUL PRAYERS: LORD, HELP ME KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME

 

A student at the New York Institute of Advertising explained why he had chosen the field: “I have dreams of making a million dollars in advertising,  just like my father.” The institute director asked, “When did your father make a million in advertising?” “He didn’t, “said the student. “But he had dreams, too.”

 

When God adopts us into His family we are entitled to gifts of inheritance. Being in God’s family is a gift of love. There are two ways to interpret “his riches and glorious inheritance”… (1) The saints are His inheritance. As saints, we’re God’s inheritance, His treasure, His prize! (2) The other view is that the inheritance means all that we will inherit in Christ. Both views are taught in Scripture.

 

Reflection

There are times when we all doubt how much we are loved. How does it make you feel knowing that God picked you and sees you as a gift? How does it make you feel knowing God has a heavenly inheritance for you?

 

Praise

Thank God for loving you. Thank God for seeing you as a gift and for the gift of your inheritance.

Sundays: 9:30 & 11:00AM
