Inherit the Promises

For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” And so, after he had patiently endured,he obtained the promise. (Hebrews 6:10-15)

The persecution and trials which believers face requires patient endurance relying upon the promises and commitment of God that He will uphold His end, and bring to His children the inherited promise of eternal life. The writer of this epistle is unknown, but he was encouraging these believing Hebrews to continue in perseverance and faith for it would be rewarded by God who sees everything a Christian saint’s life has to face, regardless of their circumstances they were to remember, that God is faithful. To encourage the Hebrews to rely upon faith as opposed to the Levitical system of worship with sacrifice offerings, the writer cited Abraham, who as a great model of faith should be imitated. I love the fact that God, can not, nor does not need to go to any higher authority than His own words of promise. If He said it, it will happen just as He said. God’s Word does not need any confirmation from someone else. It is reliable because God Himself is faithful. People confirm their witness to the truth by appealing to someone greater (especially to God) as witness. This is not so with God, He can only provide an oath from Himself, since there is no one greater than God.

Beloved friend, Has the trials and testings of your Christian walk become too tough? Remember how faithful God is to us, He sees everything and knows what lies ahead. For us who by faith, patiently wait for our Redeemer, Christ the Lord, we too shall obtain His promise of eternal life with Him. But for now, during times of suffering trial, remember who is watching you! You are leaving a legacy of faith for your children,  A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous (Proverbs 13:22) + The righteous man walks in his integrity (Who live what they believe); His children are blessed after him (Proverbs 20:7). Why all the fuss about remembering all this? God’s reward is not just for you, but through your faithful witness, to the generations after you. There will be great reward for those who embrace God’s viewpoint from here.

May the Lord bless your walk!

  1. What amazing promises we have from God that we can actually rest in faith in! I think it is safe to say that his promises are on a higher plain than the laws of physics seeing as he is the God who establishes even those. We trust that gravity will hold us down properly without giving it any thought. How much does God delight in the man or woman who trusts him to meet ALL our needs like we trust the laws of obtains to act the way they were intended to. We serve a personal savior who wants to be involved in every area of our lives…….
    Thanks brother Ron!
