God promised Abraham of the inheritance he is going to receive. God promised Israel of the inheritance of the promised land that they are going to receive. God has always promised an inheritance to His people in the Bible, as a way of His loving assurance. All of His promises of inheritance are realized in Jesus Christ, and this itself is worth pondering over, for our entire life.
Topic: God's Covenant Love
Our Election in Christ
In Christ, we have every spiritual blessing granted to us. The first Spiritual blessing is His election or predestination. God chooses sinners before the foundation of world. In this passage, we learn why and how God elects sinners to be saved.
How To Pray
As we continue to learn from the greatest sermon Jesus preached, He teaches us how hypocritical devotion to God is dishonoring to Him and ultimately rendering ineffective service to God and the people around. In this passage, the discourse on prayer especially emphasizes and reflects on God’s Fatherly love for His people as a motivation to pray.
Christ’s Perfect Protection
In the Bible, prophets, priests and kings have always been imperfect saviors of their own flock. Their leadership was always lacking, and the failures always pointed for a need of having a better savior. OT has always pointed to that One Perfect Savior i.e the Lord Jesus Christ. In this passage, we see how Christ fulfills the need for a better Savior and protector of His people.
Being Covenant Keepers
The Bible is filled with God’s promises. These promises are not primarily about God promising to provide for material things. It is about God promising to keep the covenant which He made to His people. However, it’s not just important to see how God kept His promises and will continue to keep them, but also realizing that even His children are called to be faithful to the covenant keeping God of the Bible.
God’s Truth Brings Comfort
Bible is not an instruction manual on how to go to Heaven. It’s a Book given to us by God through His servants, primarily meant to reveal Himself and His plan of redemption for the sinners. It’s only then that the Bible is meant as God’s law for redeemed sinners like us, to walk in the path of righteousness. In this passage, we learn how the Bible is also meant to bring us comfort.
Thank God For The Benefits Of The New Covenant
God’s dealing with His people has always been through covenants. The Bible is predominantly divided into two covenants. Old and the New Covenant. In this passage we learn the spiritual benefits of the new covenant in the light of the old covenant.
Find Comfort In God’s Love
God repeatedly reminds His people about His covenant love. Christian life is not just about understanding Christ’s love for us, and our response towards Him, but it’s also about understanding God’s Fatherly love towards us, which is an everlasting love.
Bible constantly emphasizes God’s steadfast love and His mercy towards sinners since the beginning of creation. This kind of love is also reflected through God’s people among themselves. In the Book of Ruth, until 3rd chapter, Ruth’s steadfast love for Yahweh and Naomi’s nation is seen. In this passage, we now see Boaz’s steadfast love and kindness being displayed and its implications for us.
