In His Presence

kingdom“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; “but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. (Mat 6:19-20 NKJ)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, ..  ..  ..  .  In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, (Eph 1:3; 11 NKJ)

So we continue our look at the spiritual blessings that God has for us.  Earlier this week we discussed being children of God. Because we are adopted children of God, we also are heirs of God’s estate (Romans 8:17). My children are heirs to my estate. But that really is not much of a source of hope for them, for my estate pretty much consists of a house, a car, some furniture, and a whole lot of books. But what is God’s estate? What does God own? God owns everything (Psalm 50:10-12), and we are the heirs to this estate.

Our focus should not be on the material, mansions in the sky nor streets of gold.  Rather, we should be rejoicing in the fact that we get to be in his presence.
