Romans 8:16-17; " For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God's children. 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)
We are children of God, therefore an heir. According to The Free Dictionary, an heir means "a person who inherits or is entitled to inherit the rank, title, or position of another." And we are also co-heirs with Christ, meaning that we share in his inheritance as the Son of God.
Those who are led by the spirit of God are called the sons of God, they have been adopted into sonship and the spirit of God lives in them, they have become heirs of God.
Now, becoming an heir does not mean that you will not go through suffering because Christ did go through suffering even though He was God's Son. If we are joint-heirs with Christ then we must share in His suffering as sons of God.
If you are going through any kind of suffering, you should not see it as a failure or disadvantage but see it as a passage to your glory since Christ was also glorified after he suffered.
2 Timothy 2:12 says; "If we endure hardship, we will reign with him. If we deny him, he will deny us."(NLT)
Heavenly Father I thank you for your word. I am an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ. I do not see failure or disadvantage in whatever I go through because it is a passage to my glory in Jesus name! Amen!
