We Have Christ to Thank for Everything

A son is an heir not by virtue of high accomplishments, but by virtue of his birth. He is a mere recipient. His birth makes him an heir, not his laborers. In exactly the same way we obtain the eternal gifts of righteousness, resurrection, and everlasting life. We obtain them not as agents, but as beneficiaries. We are the children and heirs of God through faith in Christ. We have Christ to thank for everything.
