"The Spirit Himself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ" (Rom. 8:16-17).
Do you think the people who lived under the Old Covenant could be more blessed than those in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ?
Do you think the people who lived under the Old Covenant could be blessed financially, and be well and healed, but those in the Church couldn't?
Do you think that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Body of the Son of God, the Body of the Beloved, would have to struggle through life poverty-stricken, emaciated, wasted away with starvation, sick and afflicted, singing, "Here I wander, like a beggar, through the heat and cold?"
Away with such ideas! The Bible declares that we are joint-heirs with Christ! Sons of God! Children of God! In the Kingdom of God!
We're not beggars! We're new creatures.
We're blessed above all people.
Confession: The Holy Spirit Himself bears witness with my spirit that I am a child of God. God is my very own Father. I am His very own child. And since I am His child, then I am His heir. I am an heir of God "the Creator of the universe" and I am a joint-heir with Jesus Christ!
