For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. (Romans 4:13 NKJV)
God promised Abraham that he would be the heir of the world. This promise was made to you too. The verse says, ” For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to HIS SEED through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.” So the promise was not just made to Abraham, but to “His Seed” as well, that is, you and I who belong to Christ.
And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:29 NKJV)
The Greek word for “world here is kosmos, which means the universe as well as the whole circle of earthly goods, endowments, advantages and pleasures. All these are yours to inherit through the righteousness of faith in Jesus and His finished work of the cross. This righteousness is given to you as a gift from God, so you don’t have to earn it through works.
Beloved, God wants you to be the heir of the world today. So lay hold of your rich inheritance today. Jesus paid for it with His blood! Don’t push it all to the sweet by and by! Enjoy the finished work of Christ.
