Trent's Muse - Joint Heirs With Christ Jesus
Joint Heirs With Christ Jesus
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
and if children, then heirs - heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ ..
As long as you are born again, you are no longer a "slave", but a son of the Most High God. And God does not just call you His son. He also calls you "an heir" through Christ. (Galatians 4:7) In fact, Romans 8:17 says that you are "joint heirs" with Christ.
As a joint heir with Christ Jesus, you inherit everything that He is. How precious Jesus is to the Father, is how precious you are to the Father. The way the Father loves Jesus, is the way the Father loves you!
How accepted are you by God today?
Look at Jesus. That is how accepted you are! Christ is the measure of your acceptance.
How favoured are you by God?
Look at Jesus, who is seated at the Father's right hand. You enjoy that same favour today because whatever Christ enjoys, you enjoy!
As a joint heir with Christ Jesus, you also inherit all that He has obtained from the Father. How much Jesus has, is how much you have. The victory that Christ won is yours. So are you in this world! (1 John 4:17)
I used to read the Bible to find out how to be a victorious Christian. I used to think that if just learn the “four steps’ or the “six principles” or memorised the right scriptures or prayed for an hour every day that I would be good and I would be a successful Christian. But you know what? That didn’t bring me to victory – all I became was condemned when I didn’t make it.
Then I got it – it is not about anything I do – it is all about what He has done. In Romans 13:14 Paul tells us “to put on Christ..” That means that we are to begin to live from the identity that Christ has won for us. We live not from who the world says we are but we live from what Christ has done.
So now I read the Bible to find out more about Jesus because I know that when I find Him, I find my every blessing in Him. (Ephesians 1:3, 2 Peter 1:3)
I know it is hard to grasp but the Bible is very clear - all that Jesus is in heaven today, you are in this world. All that belongs to Him belongs to you. That is why it is in your interest to know Him more, to see Him in all His glory and beauty. And because Jesus is glorious, it will take you a lifetime to discover everything that He has done for you and has for you.
YOU ARE AN HEIR OF THE FATHER – OF THE MOST HIGH GOD. YOU ARE A JOINT HEIR WITH CHRIST JESUS.
See when you begin to live from this position then suddenly you find a new level of authority and victory. See no longer are those things that may have tempted you in the past worth giving into as a Son, as a daughter of God – who have a much higher calling.
So find out all the blessings that your rich inheritance includes and start walking in them today!
All that Jesus is in heaven today you are in this world.
Get a revelation of your true identity and begin to live in the victory of who you are!
Grace and Peace
