Many people, in their active years, work hard not just to earn a living or a good pension, but also to acquire some property. This, they intend to hand down to their posterity so that life would not unbearable for them. Whereas good people have disposition, wicked people try to live in the here-and-now; consuming whatever they acquire, without any thoughts about neither their future nor that of their posterity.
Logically, if “good” human beings (in spite of all our short comings) are able to make such provisions, it stands to reason that GOD ALMIGHTY who is the GOOD, RIGHTEOUS, LOVING, GRACIOUS and MERCIFUL FATHER would make even more detailed plans for His children on earth. God knows that as we journey through life, we would need His peace, presence, protection and His gracious provision of physical and spiritual things.
Throughout the life, death, resurrection, ascension and intercessory ministry of Jesus Christ, God has acquired for all those who believe in Him, an everlasting inheritance. This act of God through Jesus would however remain void of one does not know how to appropriate this inheritance. This point is made clear in 2 Peter 1:3 which says “His power has given us everything we need for LIFE and GODLINESS THROUGH OUR KNOWLEDGE of Him who called us by his own glory and godliness”. (Emphasis mine)
This “knowledge” of what God has provided for us through Jesus is what Dr. Kodjoe Sumney has endeavoured to expound in simple, readable style. “THE BELIEVERS INHERITANCE” makes interesting reading for the young believer as well as the old. It will inspire you; it will instruct you; it will challenge you – to reach our for all that God has graciously reserved for you, your divine inheritance.
