Great Expectations


How wonderful it is to come to the knowledge of the fact that we live and move and have out being in God. If an inheritance has been deposited in the bank in our name, and we are not aware of it, it is of no value to us. We cannot draw on it because we do not know it is there. 

Every man God has created has his existence in Him, whether or not he is aware of it. Outside of God there is no life. The very air he breathes is the gift of God. When he has been awakened to this fact, whether it be through the reading, or the hearing of the Word, or even through the testimony of the very creation that surrounds him, he has a decision to make. He can begin to partake of this life, breath by breath, receive his inheritance; or he can sell his birthright as did Esau. 

The Gift is for anyone who will lay hold of it; for whomsoever will! There is none so depraved that he cannot look heavenward and repent, change his mind, determine to go in the opposite direction; for this is actually what repentance means. And there is none so favored that he can receive the inheritance in any other manner than as a Gift freely given of God. In the same way that he receives it, he continues to walk in it; moment by moment; hour by hour; day by day. Praise God for the wonderful gift of His Son in whom we move and live and have our being! Christ in you, the hope of Glory! 

The provision of God is all there. All that remains is for man to come to the knowledge of this fact, and begin to draw on the down payment of his inheritance, i.e., the Holy Spirit. If he recognizes that he is living and moving in God, has his life in Him, man can draw from that Life with every breath he takes. He has come to the knowledge of the truth, and the truth has set him free. What a great salvation we have received. Praise His Wonderful Name!!!
