Our Eternal Inheritance (2)

Acts 20:32 And now I commit you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who have been sanctified. John 17:17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.

[Part 2 of 2] An inheritance is a proper and legal possession. It is not gained by our energy, ability, or deeds. On the contrary, it is granted to us by another in a way that is legitimate. We do not work for an inheritance; we receive it. On the day we were regenerated, we were given the right to share an inheritance. This inheritance includes all the blessings related to eternal life. Daily we need to take possession of this inheritance and enjoy it. This inheritance is legal, proper, and legitimate, for Christ died to purchase it for us, paying the price of His precious blood. Daily we may participate in and enjoy the inheritance that is ours today and for eternity. According to Paul's word in Acts 20:32, the inheritance is among those who have been sanctified. To participate in God's inheritance requires us to be sanctified, and to be sanctified requires the word of God's grace. In John 17:17 the Lord Jesus prayed, "Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth." To be sanctified is to be separated from the world and its occupation unto God and His purpose, not only positionally (Matt. 23:17, 19), but also dispositionally (Rom. 6:19, 22). God's living word works in the believers to separate them from anything worldly. This is to be sanctified in God's word as the truth, the reality.
