CALLED: To Inherit A Blessing.

| Spiry Tee

"Never return evil for evil or insult for insult (scolding, tongue-lashing, berating), but on the contrary blessing [praying for their welfare, happiness, and protection, and truly pitying and loving them]. For know that to this you have been called, that you may yourselves inherit a blessing [from God–that you may obtain a blessing as heirs, bringing welfare and happiness and protection]."
1 Peter 3:9 AMPC

Inheritance is not something you work for, but it is something someone worked for and it is given to you free of charge. You are called to inherit a blessing. Being blessed in the new testament is not a product of paying tithes, sacrifices and good works.

We are blessed because of Jesus' work on the cross of Calvary. In his rebuke to the Galatians apostle Paul said, "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." (Galatians 3:13‭-‬14 NKJV).

The blessing of Abraham comes upon those in Christ. There is no curse in your life once you are in Christ. Every negative word spoken against you is cancelled in Christ. Those who said you will never be married or you will never have children or you will not see good days in your life will be ashamed because their words, now that you are in Christ, have become lighter than vanity. They are worthless because a curse causeless shall not come (Proverbs 26:2). Any curse projected towards you is causeless because you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Praise God.

What is this blessing you are called to inherit? The Psalmist elucidated: "It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing— Life forevermore." (Psalms 133:3 NKJV). The blessing we are called to inherit is the life of God.

You are a child of God meaning that you are an inheritor of His quality. The life and nature of God is yours right from the new birth. The health of God, the peace of God, the joy of the Lord, the longevity of God, the fearlessness of God and the agelessness of God is all yours. You will experience good welfare, life without lack, happiness and protection from the Lord. That's your calling. Aren't you glad you are born again? What a life you have!

I am called to inherit a blessing.  This blessing is given to me for free not because it is cheap but because it was paid for by Jesus Christ on the cross. Again this blessing I have is eternal life.
