“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
Everybody loves being a part of a team. God’s team gets involved in what’s happening on earth whether it is be prison rescues or dramatically saved lives. When we are united we are all better together than when we’re apart.
Today’s verse reminds us that the Christian life is an exciting life. It is a life in the Spirit. It is the type of life available to every follower of Jesus. It’s the life we’re meant to be living. Literally this verse reads, “Blessed are the easily imposed upon by the Holy Spirit for they shall be given an involvement in heavens plans on earth.”
To be meek simply means to be submissive to, gracious towards and easily imposed upon by the Holy Spirit. To inherit means to be given an involvement in what God is doing on earth. As we allow the Holy Spirit to lead our lives an inheritance is opened to us. But if we continue to live in a selfish way the doors of inheritance are closed.
This week let’s allow the Holy Spirit to lead us into our future. He will take us into realms of God that we have never experienced before. Let’s open up our heart and learn to be involved in heaven’s plans here on earth anytime… anywhere! This will start us on an exhilarating journey that we’ll be so glad we’re on.
