You shouldn’t live outside the Word. To live your life outside the Word of God is death. Romans 8:13 says, “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.” So, live your life the way God wants you to live: triumphant, glorious, and a success every day; live in the Word. The latter part of our opening Scripture gives us another tremendous benefit of living in the Word: it’ll give you an inheritance! You already have an inheritance in Christ Jesus, but you might not be enjoying it yet.
However, the Word of God has the ability to deliver that inheritance that belongs to you, into your hands. It’s like your lawyer helping you get a legacy or heritage that’s rightfully yours. He did all the paperwork, went to the court on your behalf, got that inheritance and delivered it to you. The Word of God is like your lawyer that delivers to you your inheritance that Jesus already gave you. There’s so much of your heritage that you haven’t tapped into yet. But through study and meditation on the Word, you appropriate and walk in the reality of these blessings to the glory of God.
