God Himself

20 The Lord said to Aaron, “You will have no inheritance in their land, nor will you have any share among them; I am your share and your inheritance among the Israelites.

Numbers 18:20

While living in a big, urban setting where there are many nice things we hope to buy and some day own, it is easy to make the luxurious, comfortable life our goal and prize for all the hard we put into our jobs. Some of us may have wealthy friends from wealthy families who will inherit homes, companies, and status and their lives may seem extravagant and amazing. To be able to inherit luxury, comfort, and power is everyone’s desire.

Yet, as followers of Christ, we have an understanding that however luxurious and wonderful the material things of this world may look, nothing can beat an inheritance that is God Himself. As God gave Himself to the Priests and Levites of Israel, we, too, have Him as our inheritance today as a Kingdom of priests and co-heirs with Christ!

Our inheritance is everlasting, creative, healing, and full of life. What an amazing and freeing reality! Our inheritance gives us freedom in the world we live in because what we will gain is outside and beyond what is tied up to the dying and the self-serving.  I pray you’ll be encouraged this week, knowing that God is our inheritance and He is faithful to fulfill His promises!

With love.
