God’s Inheritance Comes Through Faith Only

For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.  (Galatians 3:18) 

This text appears very clear to me.  We do not receive an inheritance from God because we have kept the law.  You cannot work your way into the promises of God.  First, we are not able to do so because of our sinful nature.  Secondly, God does not promise us based on our ability to live righteously.  He makes His promise to us based on our acceptance of His Son, Jesus Christ.  All of our righteousness is as filthy rags.  We are infected by sin and therefore impure.  But God has promised to give us an inheritance because we have been washed by the blood of Christ.  We can, thereby, come before God’s throne boldly and ask for forgiveness of our sins and our iniquities.  The inheritance shall be ours because of our faith in Christ.
