OUR INHERITANCE IN CHRISTPaul Dhinakaran

You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.    (John 14:14)

The Dhinakarans Dearly beloved,

The Bible says, “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (II Corinthians 9:15).

God the Father not only transforms us into the image of Lord Jesus, but also gives us the inheritance that He gave Him, as a gift to us. Lord Jesus comes down in our midst in order to make us receive the gift for which He came to give. A Christmas gift is going to be given to you.

You need not hunt for your Christmas gift under the Christmas tree or in the bag of Santa Claus. Those blessings are available in the baby Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:3). Today, that gift and inheritance abides in you who have accepted Him. By giving this gift for this earth, He has helped us to celebrate Christmas.

What is the inheritance in Christ?

The Scripture says, “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” (Ephesians 1:11). The Bible relates, “…in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear. Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.” (Hebrews 5:7,8).

When Lord Jesus was in this world, God answered all His prayers when He offered up prayers and supplications with vehement cries and tears. That’s why Jesus says, “My children, today, you have many inheritances.” He promises, "And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. "If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (John 14:13,14). "Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24).

Dearly beloved, to give us also the inheritance that He gave His Son, on this Christmas day, God is waiting to transform us into the image of Jesus. Lord Jesus says, "Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:19). In the coming days, when two of you gather, the heaven shall be opened! Whatever you ask in the name of Lord Jesus shall come down from heaven. The Lord’s inheritance shall be given to you. You shall receive it so that your joy may be full.

Prayer:

Loving Lord Jesus,

All blessings are available in You. I believe in You ask in faith for your blessings in your mighty name. Help me to abide in You and transform me into your image that I may inherit your blessings. Let all the blessings be showered upon me from heaven.

In Your matchless name I pray.

Amen.
