Rejoicing in our inheritance!
Scripture reading for March 6th: Joshua 18-22
Key Scriptures: Joshua 18:1-3 “The whole assembly of the Israelites gathered at Shiloh and set up the Tent of Meeting there. The country was brought under their control, but there were still seven Israelite tribes who had not yet received their inheritance. So Joshua said to the Israelites: “How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you? . .”
The Israelites had entered the land and taken control of it by God’s help. But seven of the tribes had not taken possession of their allotted inheritance. Joshua asked them how long they would wait to claim what was theirs!
Rejoice in our inheritance: Jesus Christ, our Joshua, has allotted His people an eternal inheritance–the Kingdom of Heaven! We possess it by faith! “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, take your inheritance, the Kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. . .” (Matthew 25:34)
