Scripture:

Donald Grey Barnhouse – Birthright

History shows that men prefer illusions to realities, choose time rather than eternity, and the pleasures of sin for a season rather than the joys of God forever. Men will read trash rather than the Word of God, and adhere to a system of priorities that leaves God out of their lives. Multitudes of men spend more time shaving than on their souls; and multitudes of women give more minutes to their makeup than to the life of the eternal spirit. Men still sell their birthright for a mess of pottage.

Spiritually speaking, many today despise their birthright.Ephesians 1:3-14 shows us a treasury of riches that are ours by birthright in Jesus:

  1. Every spiritual blessing
  2. The blessing of being chosen in Jesus
  3. Adoption into God’s family
  4. Complete acceptance by God in Jesus
  5. Redemption from our slavery to sin
  6. True and total forgiveness
  7. The riches of God’s grace
  8. The revelation and knowledge of the mystery of God’s will
  9. An eternal inheritance
  10. The guarantee of the indwelling Holy Spirit

 

Far too many neglect or trade away this birthright for cheap entertainment, momentary popularity, or passing pleasures.
