Bits & Pieces: Biblical Saints called Heirs

"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow-heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him," (Romans 8:16, 17).

* It is part of the gracious ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives to not only confirm that we are in God's family by the new birth, but that we are heirs, as well. We are recipients of all spiritual blessings now, and, in the future we will share with the Lord Jesus in all the riches of God's kingdom. And, although suffering is part and parcel of such inheritance, to be glorified with Jesus is worth it all.
