HEIRS

Rom. 8:16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 
Rom. 8:17 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. 
Have you ever wished you were rich? It’s kind of like the fairy tale where you are a prince or princess. You are an heir to the king. Your wealth has nothing to do with anything you have ever done. You just happen to be royalty with all the rights to the king’s inheritance. Well this may not be a fairy tale after all. If you are in Christ you are an heir. You have been born again into royalty. You are heirs to the greatest inheritance of all. Here is where some Christians tend to get confused. They think that their inheritance is like other kings; that it is characterized by wealth and earthly possessions. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Our king is a different kind of king and our kingdom is a different kind of kingdom. Rather than heirs to earthly wealth our inheritance is God Himself. Yes you heard me right, God is our portion. To the worldly man that means nothing, to the person who has been awakened it is the best possible news. Here is Matthew Henry’s take on today’s verse.   
 “The Lord himself is the portion of the saints’ inheritance, a goodly heritage. The saints are spiritual priests, that have the Lord for their inheritance. The vision of God and the fruition of God make up the inheritance the saints are heirs to. God himself will be with them, and will be their God. Joint-heirs with Christ. Christ, as Mediator, is said to be the heir of all things, and true believers, by virtue of their union with him, shall inherit all things. Those that now partake of the Spirit of Christ, as his brethren, shall, as his brethren, partake of his glory, shall sit down with him upon his throne, Rev. Lord, what is man, that thou shouldst thus magnify him! Now this future glory is further spoken of as the reward of present sufferings and as the accomplishment of present hopes.”
So you are born into a royal family. Christ is our fellow heir and the Lord Himself is our treasure. When you realize the importance of this truth everything in your life will change, you to will rejoice in the hope of the Glory of God.
