Of The Saints In Light
“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light”
Observe that the text didn’t say God will make you a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light. Rather, it says He “hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light.” “Us” here refers to those who are born again. God the Father has qualified us to be partakers, sharers or co-owners of an incorruptible inheritance. You couldn’t qualify by yourself; it was bequeathed to you as an act of God’s grace.
Your good works or your own deeds of righteousness weren’t good enough to qualify you for the blessing. But God, who is rich in mercy, proving that He loves you infinitely, qualified you for the good life and set you apart for glory. This means you don’t have to try to be good enough for God or struggle to merit His grace and mercy. All you need is to submit to His righteousness; that’s your qualification (Romans 103).
Now that you’re born again, you’ve inherited all the blessings of Abraham, and all the glorious and precious promises in the Word that have come to us through Christ. Righteousness, prosperity, healing and health, success, progress and spiritual advancement are all yours now.
You’ll get to know more about your inheritance in Christ as you study the Word and fellowship with the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 212 says, “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” It takes the Holy Spirit to know your inheritance and identity in Christ Jesus; He reveals these to you through the Word. Make God’s Word the priority in your life, and you’ll discover more of the wonderful blessings reserved for you as a citizen of heaven, and a saint in the Kingdom of light.
Dear heavenly Father,
I thank you for qualifying me by grace to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light. The eyes of my understanding are enlightened to comprehend and apprehend all that you’ve made available to me in Christ,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
