Heir of all things

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;  - Hebrews 1.1-2

God has always wanted to communicate with His people. He chose 'in times past' to use His prophets but now He is speaking through His Son, Jesus Christ. Not only did and does He speak through the words of Christ, but Christ, as the Creator of all things has been made the heir of all the things. 

It is the 'heir of all things' that is a blessing to us. 

How does that happen? How is the fact that Christ is the heir of all things apply to us? 

It is because in Romans 8.17 we are told that we are not only heirs, but we are joint heirs with Christ. 

The fact that we have we share in Christ's inheritance is almost more than I can comprehend. Through His death, burial and resurrection He has opened the door to all the riches of heaven for us. 

Praise God that Jesus is the heir of all things, that He has made us joint heirs with Him, and that He preserves that inheritance for us.
