The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed I have a beautiful inheritance.
~Psalm 16:6 ESV~
We learned that God has made us heiresses - and co-heirs with Christ. We learned that our lives are never left to chance.
We learned that we have an inheritance that consists of
As New Testament believers we are priests - and like the Levites
in the OT - our property is the PRESENCE of God Himself.
We inherit PEOPLE - those whom God places around us
in community who share our inheritance or will be blessed by it.
Our PROPERTY is His Presence - but it is also the process of
Christ redeeming our pasts, our life experiences and
our spiritual gifts
in the intimacy with God that we embrace.
We learned that we have a 'field'! Many of us were excited to embrace
that concept of being 'stewards over' our earthly properties - and learning
that we are to 'harvest' those fields to the very edges
with other believers who have the same fields assigned to them.
We are to work together for kingdom purposes - not separately.
The Kingdom of God is within us now
