How do you get your inheritance? Inheritance is defined as the common term for property or any possession that comes to an heir.
Jesus came to bring you SONSHIP. You gained SONSHIP into the Kingdom of God when you became Born Again. As a SON you are an HEIR to the inheritance promised to you.
4 But when the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born subject to [the regulations of] the Law,
5 To purchase the freedom of (to ransom, to redeem, to atone for) those who were subject to the Law, that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us [and be recognized as God’s sons].
6 And because you [really] are [His] sons, God has sent the [Holy] Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba (Father)! Father!
7 Therefore, you are no longer a slave (bond servant) but a son; and if a son, then [it follows that you are] an heir by the aid of God, through Christ. Galatians 4:4-7 AMP
Inheritance has nothing to do with performance of how good or bad you are but being a rightful HEIR. You do not earn inheritance; it is a gift received. There is no self-effort or performance as a measurement to get the inheritance. It is unmerited favor by grace that you are the heir. You are not under the bondage, slavery and condemnation of the law of the religious people trying to earn heirship through their own efforts. The law condemns. Jesus brings SONSHIP and FREEDOM. Christ redeemed and set mankind free from the Law and has given you HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS as your INHERITANCE, not by your good works which would allow you to boast. Your INHERITANCE comes to you based upon what JESUS did, not what you have done.
Faith is voided in your self-effort. Faith comes by knowing your identity in Christ as an HEIR of the PROMISES of GOD.
Your inheritance is now and forever in Christ Jesus. Your inheritance is knowing that your Heavenly Father loves you. HE redeemed you. HE condemned sin and the curse on the Cross. HE has made you complete, healed, and reconciled to God through Christ Jesus. You are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
