220px-A W TozerQualifiying as a Beneficiary

What

no mortal has done, Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, has achieved. He has accomplished this kind of enduring administration and divine beneficence. Jesus died to activate the terms of the will to all its beneficiaries; Jesus rose in victory from the grave to administer the will.

Is that not beautiful? Jesus did not turn God's will over to someone else to administer. He Himself became the Administrator. Many times He declared, "I will be back. I will rise again on the third day!" He came back from the dead. He rose on the third day. He lives to carry out for His people all the terms of His will.

We must continue to trust this Living One who is now our great High Priest in the heavens. There is not a single argument in liberal theology strong enough to pry us from our faith. We have a living hope in this world, and that living hope is equally valid for the world to come.

Oh, yes. I should tell you exactly who are named in God's new will.

The answer is Christ's answer and invitation. Whosoever! "Whoever wishes, let him take the free gift." Amen.

Verse

The Spirit and the bride say, 'Come!' And let him who hears say, 'Come!' Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. Revelation 22:17

Thought

Whosoever will come to Christ and trust Him fully becomes a beneficiary of the new will. We can't earn the inheritance. We can only receive it as a free gift by receiving Christ as our Savior and Lord.

Prayer

Open my heart-eyes, Lord, that I may comprehend more and more all that I have and all that I am in You!
