16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
When you became born again, that is exactly what happened, you were re-born. Through His amazing love and sacrifice, you were spiritually and supernaturally made like Him, as if you had never sinned. What this really means in the simplest of descriptions is that your heart of sin was removed and His heart of love took its place. In other words, you received a spiritual heart transplant. You are now a child of God, His son or daughter, and royalty in His Kingdom. You are now tasked with being a carrier of the same love that He has shown you. That love has now become your standard of living. Anything less than living by this love is falling short of the position that He has placed you in. You are an heir to the throne of God, you are His child just like Jesus, your big brother. Love is in the ‘Heir’, and you are His heir. His very own child that He gave up His life for. His love is in you, it’s your job to let it be the controlling force in every decision, response, and situation that presents itself to you. Allow His Holy Spirit to lead you in a love walk that will change the lives of everyone you come in contact with. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff.
