Blessing 22. JOINT HEIRSHIP

Ephesians 3:6 gives us the blessing

that the Gentiles should be joint heirs [Eph 3:6]

Israel's most well-known blessing is the land which God promised to Abraham as an inheritance.

Then the LORD said to Abram,
“Get going out of your land
And your native country
And from your father's house
To the land which I will show you” [Gen 12:1]

And he said to him, “I am the LORD who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land, for you to inherit it.” [Gen 15:7]

But Israel is also described as God's inheritance.

because the LORD of hosts will bless it and say, ‘Blessed is my people Egypt, and the work of my hands Assyria, and my inheritance Israel.’ [Isa 19:25]

This is quite amazing! God condescends to call an earthly nation His inheritance. What good are we to Him? God of course can change us so that we are of use to Him.

The situation is similar in Ephesians. We have been made heirs for a purpose, as is seen in our next blessing.
