Kingdom Manna


1 Corinthians 15:50, “What I am saying brothers and sisters, is this: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.”

Land is prized in many cultures. It is regarded as heritage, whether public as to a tribe, or inheritance, as personal to a family. Wars may decimate it and nature may savage it but it remains a concrete signpost. A place of ownership. A place of legacy.

God offers His inheritance to His children. A kingdom. A land of promise. A place of peace. His legacy. Bought with a price. Paid with His blood.

Love passed down from heaven to each believer. Love and kindness and mercy and salvation. Imperishables. Not easy to see and measure but real. An inheritance that lasts beyond cobwebs and rust and decay.

Gracious Lord, remind me to seek Your ways. To work for Your legacy. To pursue a heritage that will not fade away. That can be shared throughout Your created world. An inheritance unmarred by injustice or inequality. A land for all who choose Your heritage.

Psalm of Worship: Psalm 37:34

Wait for the Lord, and keep to his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land;

you will look on the destruction of the wicked.
