TEXTS: Colossians 1:12-20

WORD STUDY: The word “inheritance” found in (Colossians 1:12) literally means, “lot”, “portion” or “a person’s share”. The Greek term is {Gr: klēros} which has several meanings, also from where we get the word “Clergy” which means “in Charge”.  But focusing on our text, the context in Col. 1:12 is [Gr: kleronomia], “an inheritance,”. This can also be found in Act 26:18. It deals with what God has in grace assigned to the sanctified or believers in Christ. The other keyword “light” [Gr: phōs] talks about God as Light. He is both the Source and the Light. Therefore, believers have inheritance in Christ, the Source of Life and everything that exists just as light is the source of life.

INTRODUCTION: As we move from exploring the Legality of Our Inheritance, we will be considering what our Ultimate Inheritance is. Most people count inheritance mainly from the visible and tangible realities, but the real inheritance of believers resides in us in the person of Jesus Christ. No one knew the Father until Jesus introduced Him; no one knew Jesus until the Father had introduced Him. The greatest gift one can receive from God is the revelation of the Person of the resurrected and victorious Jesus Christ in him. Once the King of kings becomes real to you, nothing on this earth can stand you again!
