WE ARE GOD’S CHILDREN AND COHEIRS WITH JESUS

The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. – Romans 8:16-17

Our spirit knows all we need to know, as it is united with the Holy Spirit, since we became born again. This means that in our inner men we know that we are the children of God. The Father-child relationship brings huge benefits. It makes us our Father’s heirs and co-heirs with Christ too.

But, to be God’s children for real, comes with a price. Our salvation costs us nothing, but to keep it, we have to give and surrender it all to God. We need to be fully committed to our Lord, as He suffered tremendously for us, in our place. The path to heaven is not all joy, but the one to hell has even more pain and ends up in eternal damnation and torment. It is worth it to suffer for serving the One who suffered first in our place, out of His amazing love for every single one of us. While on this earth, pain and despair is not far away from any of us, but if we choose to live for Jesus we can endure it all way easier, as He is protecting and helping us out, every time.

SUGGESTED PRAYER

Thank You precious Lord for giving such a glorious purpose to my life. You created me to shine for You and to bring You praises and glory! I am so blessed to be Your child and to know that I can be with You in the perfect place, called heaven. Thank You so very much for all You do for me here on earth and for what you have prepared for me in heaven. Please help me be always true to You, remaining in You as I know that You will remain in me. I love and praise You dear Lord. Amen
