November 3 – Hebrews 9:15. Our Inheritance.

For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.

You are one of the called.  I am one of the called.  In fact, there is no one that hasn’t been called by Christ.

The new covenant has been set in place so that we can receive the promised eternal inheritance.

If you think about the word inheritance, what comes to mind?  Money? Furniture? Jewelry? Homes?  What are some of the things that you might expect from an inheritance.

We all know full well that Jesus isn’t going to give us any of those things.  All of our needs will be met, we will even receive a place in His home.  The things that come as part of this inheritance are not things at all.

The promise that there will be no more mourning or pain, there will be no more death.  God himself will wipe our tears.  He will be with us, He will live with us.  This is our inheritance.  It is worth more than any amount of money, it is more beautiful than any piece of jewelry.  It is a love like we yearn for every moment of our lives.
