Last Wills

Galatians 3:29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abrahams descendants, heirs according to the promise.

Many of us have made wills. These wills are to let our heirs know who gets what of our precious possessions.  Sometimes we are very specific in our instructions.  We have a possession that is worth more than all others we have accumulated and named in our wills. This possession is our relationship with God, the Creator through His Son, Jesus.  It is only through Jesus that we have the promise of being a joint heir with Him in sharing all that is in eternity in the Presence of the Father, God.  I wonder how many wills mention this possession and encourage our heirs on how to welcome this possession into their lives. The greatest gift we can leave our heirs is the gift of the wisdom we have gained from our relationship with God. To leave this out of our wills, our last chance to impart the knowledge of God to those we love, is a tragedy. I have written love letters to each out our children, in-law children and grandchildren. Every so many years I re-write them as situations, ages and maturity changes. I share the good and bad I’ve learned in my walk with God and encourage them in theirs. I pass my most valuable possession to them. I cannot give it to them. It only come from God through Jesus. I can give the directions to lead them to the greatest treasure they can be heir to that will take them through all eternity. I can pass it on.
