“Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan. God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God. And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.”
Ephesians 1:11-14 NLT
Being spiritually "born again" through Jesus Christ makes us God's inheritance. Because we are His inheritance, we receive an inheritance from God as His children. Because of what Jesus has done (His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, burial, and triumphant resurrection) we can be saved regardless of what our nationality or race may be. God loves the Jew and Gentile. He has given the Holy Spirit to all those who have truly trusted Christ as Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit is the one who has performed the work of salvation in our lives. He is the person of God in us who are believers. His presence assures us of a future return of Jesus and the reclamation of all things in Christ. Take heart my brothers and sisters. We are the children of God! He will fulfill what He set out to do. The best is yet to come. Look up! He will return!!!Let us be watching and waiting.
