Inheritance

Bible verses about inheritance.


As Christians, we know that we are heirs of God's kingdom, but sometimes, it's easy to forget just how immense that inheritance truly is. From salvation to eternal life, God's inheritance for us is vast and multifaceted. In this post, we'll explore 10 Bible verses that remind us of just how wonderful our inheritance truly is.


"The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot." - Psalm 16:5

This verse reminds us that our inheritance in God isn't just something we'll receive in the distant future; it's something we can experience and enjoy now. Our relationship with God is our chosen portion, and when we live in alignment with His will, we find true satisfaction and joy.


"In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will." - Ephesians 1:11

This verse emphasizes the security of our inheritance. Our status as heirs of God's kingdom isn't a temporary or fragile thing; it's something that is predestined and eternal.


"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you." - 1 Peter 1:3-4

This verse paints a stunning picture of God's inheritance for us: imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. These aren't qualities that can be found in earthly inheritances; they are only possible through the transformative power of Christ.


"For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, 'Abba! Father!' The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him." - Romans 8:14-17

This passage emphasizes the intimacy and closeness of our relationship with God. As His children, we are heirs alongside Christ Himself, and the Holy Spirit bears witness to our status as beloved members of His family.


"But, as it is written, 'What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.'" - 1 Corinthians 2:9

This verse reminds us that even our wildest imaginings of God's inheritance for us fall short of the reality. God has prepared wonders beyond our comprehension for those who love Him.


"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." - Matthew 13:44

This parable speaks to the priceless value of God's inheritance. Like the man in the story, we should be willing to give up everything we have in order to possess it.


"And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name's sake, will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life." - Matthew 19:29

This verse reminds us that earthly sacrifices we make for the sake of the Gospel will be rewarded in ways that far exceed what we could imagine.


"For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one." - Hebrews 10:34

This passage emphasizes the eternal nature of our inheritance in God. We may experience temporary losses or difficult situations, but we can always take comfort in the knowledge that our true inheritance is secure.


"And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." - Galatians 6:9

This verse reminds us that our inheritance isn't just handed to us; we have a role to play in earning it. When we persist in doing good, we can trust that our reward is coming.


"And he who was seated on the throne said, 'Behold, I am making all things new.' Also he said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.' And he said to me, 'It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.'" - Revelation 21:5-7

This stunning passage reminds us that God's inheritance is truly infinite. We will drink from the spring of the water of life, and we will be His children forever.


In conclusion, these 10 Bible verses are just a taste of the richness of God's inheritance for us. As we meditate on His promises, let us be filled with hope and excitement for what is to come. May we continue to pursue Him with all our hearts, knowing that our reward is sure.
