Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. – Galatians 4:7
What would happen if you received a letter informing you that you are the richest person in the world? That millions of pounds had been deposited into your bank account. I would think overwhelming joy, unbelievable freedom, and amazing security. Hope, joy, peace would be just some of the reactions you would experience.
The amazing truth is that every Christian has been given something that is infinitely greater than coins in their bank account. They have been made an heir of God and a joint-heir in Christ. All of the storehouses of heaven’s riches have been opened up and made available by grace.
Everything that Christ is has been interwoven into us; we have the fullness of Christ on the inside of us.
Because Christ is perfect peace we have perfect peace
Because Christ is glory we have his glory living in us
Because Christ is never sick we have the health of God inside of us
Because Christ endured pain for us we can live free from oppression.
Because Christ won the victory over Satan we can have total victory over every affliction.
Grace is everything Christ won at the cross, freely given to me as a gift, deposited into my spirit for me to enjoy and live in.
I am sanctified, holy, redeemed, and free. I am a joint-heir with Christ.
