Understanding Your Assets in the Kingdom (Part II)
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, and the deep things of God” (1 Cor. 2:9)
God has blessed every believer with all spiritual blessings available in Christ Jesus (Eph. 1:3). Remember that we are joint heirs – partaker of God’s inheritance – with Christ (Rom. 8:17). Not only that, we also shared in the blessings of Abraham through Christ Jesus (Gal. 3:14). This is the nature of great assets we have in Christ. It is a wonderful thing to be a child of God.
However, it takes revelation in your mind to understand what you have as an inheritance in the kingdom of God. Revelation is a potent key in the kingdom. That revelation comes as we study the Bible which is the constitution of the Kingdom of God. The Bible outlines the nature of our inheritance and the conditions that we must meet to enjoy them. We will consider two of such assets today as revealed by the word of God:
- Your Asset of Eternal Life: “I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). This is the greatest possession of every child of God. This life is not primarily the ability to live eternally but a return of the very breath of God humanity received in the beginning at the Garden of Eden that made him to exercise dominion over the creations. This life is the light of God in you that made you untouchable to the devil, “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (John 1: 4, 5)
Your Asset of God’s Forgiveness: “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death” (Rom. 8:1, 2.) When you give your life to Jesus, God forgave all your sins (Psalm 103:11-12). Guilt and condemnation are monsters that kill fast. The devil delights in keeping us bound to our past deeds and misdeeds. When you live in condemnation you find it difficult to make progress in life.
