Receiving from the Father – Deepika Emmanuel Sagar

“…giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light…” (Colossians 1:12, NIV)

My father retired as a senior scientist, and while he was in that service, we lived on campus. The guard at the entrance gate knew whose daughter I was, so whenever I crossed that way, he would stand and salute me. I wondered why anyone would do such a thing.  What great deed had I done? I was just a graduate student back then and had never interacted with this guard, yet still I was receiving this honour. 

It was not because of what I did but because of who my father was.  The same thing happens in our spiritual life. We get an inheritance from our parents because of who we are; children of our parents.  We not only receive materialistic things from them but we also (hopefully) choose to hold onto their faith and spiritual walk if they are believers.

Just as we receive from our earthly father, we receive from our heavenly Father in a similar way. Our inheritance from God is received by faith because of who we are in Christ — children of God.  God calls us to hold onto our inheritance in Him.  It’s not about the material things God gives, but about our faith in Christ and the spiritual walk He is calling on us to hold onto.

We receive whatever our Father has in store — love, honour, respect, peace, hope and so much more, along with the honour of being blessed and becoming a blessing to others. A determination to follow Him brings with it the realisation of His qualities and Christ’s strength that lives within us. As we remain in His Word, we understand our heavenly inheritance; the blessings from our Father, the strength of faith, and the endurance of living a life that comes through Him.  Make a choice of receiving from your Heavenly Father all that you have in Christ.
