‘Giving thanks to the Father,who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.’ Colossians 1:12(American Standard Bible)
In the old testament you have to keep all the laws before you get blessed(Deuteronomy 28:1-14) because they could not keep the law they could not enjoy the fulness of the promise,they only had a good report(Hebrew 11:39).God decided to send Jesus who will fulfill the laws on our behalf and then deliver us from the law into grace(Romans 6:14).Today,the rules have changed we do not get whatever blessing from God because of our efforts like in the old testament,but because of what Jesus did for us.
Jesus is the reason God will bless you not you.God will not look at your perfection to bless you but the perfection of Christ Jesus.You are blessed today not by your labours but by the labours of Christ.
Our text declares that God himself has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance.Take note that the word ‘qualified’ used in our text is a past tense which means you are already qualified,you are not going to be qualified someday when you fast,pray and do enough good works like we had it in the old testament.By virtue,of what Christ did on the cross you are qualified for any good thing the scripture promises.God himself made you qualified not your efforts.
My dear,never you allow anybody,book,church or preacher disqualify you.You are the right candidate for success,prosperity,health,fame,favor,miracles just name it.
All good things are your because of Christs’ work on the cross not your efforts or good deeds.Not by your faithfulness but his faithfulness,not you goodness but his goodness.Go now and enjoy them.Beloved you are qualified for the best.Praise God!
