It is the elect who shall inherit
My elect shall inherit it (Isaiah 65:9)
The inheritance belongs to God's elect. God's elect are such that bring forth the fruits of the kingdom; who live, talk and grow daily more like Jesus, through the work of the Holy Spirit, and in conformity to the commandments of God's Holy Law. "By their fruits shall you know them," said Jesus.
Think not that such can be accomplished by sin-stained human flesh. No! No! A thousand times, NO!!! It is all of grace, so that not any one of us can boast.
Lord, thank you for the Atonement, thank you for the blood, thank you for the death, burial and resurrection of your Son, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
