Sunday Meditation – An Incorruptible Inheritance

“He is a portion that none can rob or wrong you of; he is a portion that none can touch or take from you — he is a portion that none can cheat or spoil you of. God is such a portion, that no friend, no foe, no man, no enemy, no devil—can ever rob a Christian of. O Christians, God is so yours in Christ, and so yours by covenant, and so yours by promise, and so yours by purchase, and so yours by conquest, and so yours by donation, and so yours by marriage union and communion, and so yours by the gift of the Spirit, and so yours by the feelings and witnessings of the Spirit — that no power or policy on earth can ever lay a finger on your portion; or cheat, or rob you of your portion.”

“But God is a portion that the fire cannot burn, nor the floods cannot drown, nor the thief cannot steal, nor the enemy cannot seize, nor the soldier cannot plunder a Christian of. A man may take away my gold from me — but he cannot take away my God from me! The Chaldeans and the Sabeans could take away Job’s estate from him — but they could not take away Job’s God from him, Job 1. And the Amalekites burnt Ziklag, and robbed David of his substance, and of his wives — but they could not rob him of his God, 1 Sam 30. And those persecutors in Heb 10:34, plundered the saints of their goods — but they could not plunder them of their God.”
