God’s Expectations

In ancient times as in modern times, we have a desire to pass on to our children, a heritage.  Some people call it an inheritance, and whether we like to admit it or not, we children, expect our parents to have some kind of inheritance for us.  In the Bible, families often counted their flocks and herds as a heritage, something valuable and given in your old age as a parent to your children.  The people of God today are counted precious and as God’s own heritage, both in the Old Testament and the New, (Joel 3:2, Ephesians 1:11). He gives us many more blessings that are impossible for us to count and in turn we  are expected to bless Him as a precious heritage should. He also counts us as His flock. In the Bible, sheep are described as:

Beautiful, (Jeremiah 13:20)

Wise & Harmless (Matthew 10:16)

Lost, but Found & Rejoiced Over (Mt. 18:12-20)

Gathered together by a Resurrected Shepherd, (Matthew 26:31-32)

Do you believe God looks upon Christians like this?  All Christians? Yes it is a precious faith He gave us and God expects us to give this Faith to others…
