I am…a Co-heir
“Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” Romans 8:17 NIV
As a child of God, through Jesus Christ, we have a place that we do not deserve. We were not born into this position, but adopted. He chose us to be His.
We have become princes, princesses, and CO-HEIRS!
We share in the experiences of Jesus and are given all that He is through His Holy Spirit.
We share in his pain and suffering. This is an inheritance that reminds us that suffering and struggle are not necessarily signs of God being far, but that we are nearer to Christ as we are co-heirs in that pain that he bore for us.
Not only do we share in his suffering, but also His glory. We have inherited the glory that comes with who Jesus is.
We are made righteous through him and have undeservingly become CO-HEIRS with Christ!
