Romans 8:17 – Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ (NIV).
According to Forbes Magazine, Bill Gates is the richest man on earth. He has held the title for four straight years, and 18 out of the past 23. He is worth a whopping $86 billion. Unfortunately for his kids, they won’t be receiving his wealth as an inheritance when he dies. It’s being left to charity.
You are God’s kid and heir to His riches, but there are two distinct differences between God and Bill Gates in this regard. First, God’s riches far exceed the software mogul’s $86 billion fortune, and they are not strictly monetary in value.
Secondly, Bill Gates is alive, and his assets will not be disseminated until he kicks the bucket. As for you, Jesus already died and was raised to life in order for you to share in His inheritance now.
In Ephesians 3:8, Paul calls the riches available to you in Christ unsearchable. His net worth of grace, peace, joy, mercy, and more cannot be calculated.
