Joint Heirs

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Romans 8:17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

As adopted children of God we are co-heirs with His Son, Jesus. That means we share in all that the Father gives to His Son. It is not for us to choose what the Father gives. A gift is the choice of the giver. God sent Jesus on a mission that included pain and suffering along with blessings. We cannot expect less. When pain and suffering come our way do we accept it and continue to praise and serve God as Jesus did or do we moan, groan and complain to God and to all who’ll listen. Let us choose to walk in thankful obedience in all circumstances God allows to come our way.
