Our Inheritance

Ephesians 1:11  

In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.

God’s great purpose and will is mind-boggling! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, has inherited all things—the entire universe. And He will share His inheritance with His brothers and sisters, those “many sons” God is bringing to glory (Hebrews 2:8-10).

God wants to give us eternal life as children of God in the Kingdom of God! As the apostle John wrote, “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1).

Read more about this incredible human potential in the articles “Joint Heirs With Christ,” “Children of God” and “The Gift of Eternal Life.”
