The Inheritance of Jesus - John 6

John 6
35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. 37 All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. 40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

Jesus is the bread of life? If we go to Him we will never hunger or thirst. I really love what is stated about us being given to Jesus by the Heavenly Father.

So that makes us His inheritance! We are the ineritance of Jesus! Wow. Not only is He our soon and coming King, but we are His ineritance.

If you consider that a gift, then I bring to you this argument. Would you take care of a bunch of people and love them, teach them, and be everything they need? No. It's not a gift, it's an inheritance, a responsibility.

Jesus was meant to take care of us, not condemn us or leave us to die.

Amen.
