Ro 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Ro 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Ro 8:17 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.
We are no longer in spirit of bondage to fear...because we HAVE received THE Spirit of Adoption...we have been adopted into the family of God
by HIS Spirit. We belong to the God of the Universe! He calls us His own and we know this because our spirit now bears witness with His claiming
us His children. Now, as we are His children...He loves us all ...and He has made us heirs...joint-heirs with Christ....
He has given us everything pertaining to life and godliness. He has given us access! He has given us precious promises that
guarantee our Postion in HIM!
And why....do we feel less than? Are we truly believing that we have been given such a great gift? I know it can be difficult, we can think we are so
undeserving...we wonder how can this be...NO longer should anyone born again believer struggled with His acceptance...their is freedom in this...and I desire
to encourage you to embrace this truth!
think of it like this...if you were adopted...you could be adopted by a family who loves you and their potential to invest in you could range from just love
to riches and opportunities because of income. You have been adopted into God's family that may not pour out the "funds" over you...but He definately
has poured out the Spiritual gifts and has given us everything that is capable of enabling us to live to our full potential in Christ!
You have been accepted, loved, and valued just the way you are! Despite earthly ties, your spiritual ties are established through the Spirit of Truth by the
blood of Jesus.
Wow, do we understand the depth of our resources in Jesus?!!!! Do we understand how big our family is?!!! Are we taking full advantage of our Position
in Christ and using it to glorify HIM?!!! We should be honored to share in HIs suffering so He can receive all the glory!
Remember with already have surpassing victory in Christ...If God is for us who can be against us...and its all because of our relationship IN HIM!
Fear is not of God...bottom line...God is not the spirit of fear, but love, POWER, and a sound mind! We are set free from bondage and given he
heirship of the Ruler of the Universe...do you think our Daddy likes to see us defeated? ABSOLUTELY NOT...that is why we are equipped for surpassing
victory...let us all live life to the fullest IN HIM! AMEN!
GLORY!!! GOD'S GLORY!!! How amazing!
YOUR ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!!! As Jesus said, Believe on me...Follow me...love the father...obey my words...Jesus said!
1) a fellow heir, a joint heir
2) one who obtains something assigned to himself with others, a joint participant
