#5363 – God’s Heir

Good morning people who are inheritors of the fullness of God’s goodness.

Galatians 4:6-7 NIV Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “ Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.

I truly believe that Father wants us to see ourselves as His children, and as such, as His rightful and legal heirs.

The spiritual reality of us as heirs is this: What Father gave His Son while He lived on earth, He has freely given to us too! What the Son could do, we also can do, and even greater according to John 14:12.

Romans 8:14-17 NIV For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

The word co-heirs literally means participants in common. This is so powerful! As children of God, we are participants in common with the Son of God, Jesus Christ. While this may be “too good to be true”, it is the absolute truth according to God Himself through His perfect Word!!

You are God’s heir according to His promises! This is who you are!
