You Are A Child Of God
The grace that God showers on us includes the power to live an overcoming
life. We have been adopted as full sons in God's kingdom; heirs of
everything that God has reserved for us in Jesus. We have to be
prepared to go through persecution as well as abundance but Jesus
will be with us throughout.
Romans 8: 14 For all who are led by the
Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the
spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the
Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
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.
We have been given as heirs the same power and authority to use in
Jesus' name as He had when He walked on the earth Himself. As a
result Jesus can say to us...
Matthew 10:7 And proclaim as you
go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers,
cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay.
We can do this because we live by grace's empowerment accessed
through faith in Jesus. or, as the Apostle Paul put it...
Romans 5:1 We have access through faith
into this grace in which we stand.
Isn't it just amazing to see what Christ Jesus wants to do through us?
He has placed within us the power through Holy Spirit for US to do
those things, provided we have the courage of the New Testament saints
to "walk in our blssings".
Best wishes for Grace and the Peace of Jesus.
