SONS AND JOINT HEIRS!
“And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together”(Romans 8:17)
The Holy Spirit has come to dwell within us as the ‘earnest’ (1 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5) or down payment of our eternal inheritance. Heaven for us will be our full inheritance, the full manifestation of our son ship and adoption. All that happens to us in this life is training for reigning, mere preparation for the time when we rule and reign with Christ Jesus.
The Holy Spirit within us is our Helper, the One preparing us to reign with Christ. When we go through spiritual attack, the Holy Spirit helps us to pray and overcome. Therefore, everything we are going through now is simply growing us up and preparing us for dominion in eternity.
Because we have identified with Christ’s sufferings and fought life through, the eternal day will come when we also share His Glory. We will be seated on thrones with Him; ‘To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne’ Revelation 3:21.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
“I belong to Christ and am the seed of Abraham and heir according to the promise in Jesus Name, Amen.”
