HE DIED THAT YOU MAY RECEIVE AND BE THE BEST
Have you ever wondered like me, what is the benefit of serving God? Let's be real today dear friend, do you also wonder like me, what is in it for me? Especially, if things don't just add up in your life, yet you are serving and trusting God. Do you feel depressed about this sometimes? Am I talking to someone today? Can you relate to this line of thoughts? Please, take time to read Rev. 5:1-12.
Beloved, by accepting Jesus as your Lord and saviour, you've become a heir and a joint heir with Christ. Who is an HEIR? It is a person inheriting a trait, inheritance or/and responsibility. You have been bought by the blood therefore, you have right because you have also been made right by the blood of Christ. By this conclusion, you have right to your fathers house and inheritance as a joint heir with Jesus Christ. See vs. 12..."saying with a loud voice: worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive POWER and RICHES and WISDOM and STRENGHT and HONOUR and GLORY and BLESSING".
Bro & Sis, who do you think Jesus received all the above for? For who did he die? Am sure He did not die for the angels, the devil or for Himself. He did not need these things. He received it all for ME and YOU! Hallelujah! In order words, what is the need in your life that He can't provide or meet? Why do you worry when your Father is the owner of a thousand cattle upon the hills! He created the heavens and the earth and all that is there in. Friend, I challenge you to change your mentality and look up to Jesus, the author and the finisher of your faith.
Everything you will ever need in life has been retrieved back for you through the cross by His one perfect sacrifice. You are a HEIR why do you have the mentality of a slave? Stop wondering and start acting like son.
