A Partaker Of The Inheritance
"Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:" Colossians 1:12. We give thanks unto the Father for every blessing both spiritual and material. The church of God has a promise of an inheritance. This inheritance is not physical, but rather it is spiritual. Our inheritance is a heavenly home in the eternal world. God will one day close out earthly history. We have no information as to when this event will take place, but rather, as a thief comes, so will Christ come. When Jesus comes again, He will reward His servants with this inheritance that will not diminish in glory nor fade in radiance. God through His grace and love has made us meet to be a partaker of this inheritance. As many as have obeyed the gospel and lived a life of faithful service will be rewarded with an inheritance that God has prepared. We should be thankful for such a wonderful promise. We should live a righteous life all of our days so that we might be fit to enter into this heavenly rest.
