When someone inherits a parcel of land or money or whatever has been bequeathed, it is usually passed on to a loved one. Christ came to hand over our inheriance from the Father. Through Jesus's death and resurrection we are able to receive the inheritance passed on to Jesus through the Father and then to us so that we can carry out His purpose and his plan for the redemption of mankind empowering us to be the manifestation of His glory here on the earth!
In John 17, Jesus says, "I have manifested Your Name (I revealed Your very Self, Your real Self) to the people whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, and You gave them to Me, and they have obeyed and kept Your word. Now (at last) they know and understand that all You have given Me belongs to You (is really and truly Yours). For the uttered words that You gave Me I have given them; and they have received and accepted (them) and have come to know positvely and in reality (to believe with absolute assurance) that I came forth from Your presence, and they have believed and are convinced that You did send Me." John 17:6-8
Matthew 10:7-8, "And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand! Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons, freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give." (The Every Day Life Amplified Bible)
