The Divine Inheritance Strategy
1 Peter 1:3
*”Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,”*
Many rich of this world care less about their soul but would rather do everything to amass earthly wealth and an inheritance which perishes. (Mark 8:36). You will grab their attention when you talk to them about the world hereafter. To the rich or comfortable, starting off your message with the subject of purpose can be an icebreaker. To others, starting the message with seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you, can be the clincher. (Matthew 6:33)
One of the blessings of salvation is eternal inheritance. To be saved, you are delivered from the power of darkness into the kingdom of Jesus Christ. What happens next is that you are made qualified to participate or partake in the inheritance reserved for the saints.
Colossians 1:12 -13
*“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:”*
Understand that you were saved to save others. Your eyes were opened that you may open the eyes of others. You were turned from darkness to light that you may do likewise to others. As a believer, you are to turn people from the power of Satan unto God. God wants to use you to bring forgiveness of sins to a sinful world and to help the saints to receive an inheritance in Christ.
The Lord summarized our solemn duties as soul winners when He called Paul. Take a look below:
_“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”_
Many will be touched by the message of salvation presented from the inheritance perspective. What is key in all of these strategies is your sensitivity to discern the most suitable to deploy. I pray that you be inspired at all times to discern the best strategy in Jesus name.
