HEIRS OF GOD

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Rom 8:17

And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God's glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

NLT

Yesterday we saw a story of how Maureen went from being a child at the orphanage to the daughter of the Willhorfs; the owners of the orphanage she grew up in. One of the things Mr. and Mrs. Willhorf told her was that everything in the house is now hers; she is now their real child and all that they have is hers as well. She was now a joint heir with their biological children.

Being heirs with Christ means that all God has is ours too; that is why the angels minister for us. We are heirs of the entire physical and spiritual universe.

We see in our text that if we must share in Christ’s glory we must also share in his suffering. The reason why it is suffering is because we are in a body of flesh. This flesh cannot please God, it cannot carry this glory we are to inherit and it indeed tries to drag us back to the orphanage; away from our father. Taking up your cross; crucifying the flesh is the suffering of Christ. We must deny ourselves, take us our cross and follow Christ. We must change the way we think. We must let the mind of Christ dominate us- we must choose to walk in the spirit and not in the flesh if we must share in this glory of Christ. If we pass this exam, persecutions and the likes are but a small matter.

Go into today knowing that God has given you the grace to live above the flesh. This grace is manifested when you walk in the spirit. Walking in the spirit is activated when you are filled with the spirit and submitted to His leading.

Prayer: thank you heavenly father for saving me. I pray you help me crucify the flesh by walking daily in the Spirit. Deliver me from doing evil lord, in Jesus name I pray
