This is such a beautiful and encouraging truth. As believers, we have the glory of God working in us. If you are a born again child of God, then you are a heir with Jesus. Jesus is the one and only begotten (biological) son of God. Every saint is an adopted son of God. We will one day in Heaven fully enjoy all the same blessings, splendors, joys and privilege's to which Jesus Himself is entitled. I looked up the meaning of the word “heir.” According to the American Heritage Dictionary, a heir is:
- A person who inherits or is entitled by law or by the terms of a will to inherit the estate of another.
- A person who succeeds or is in line to succeed to a hereditary rank, title, or office.
- One who receives or is expected to receive a heritage, as of ideas, from a predecessor.
1st Corinthians 2:5-9, “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
Romans 4:13-15, “For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.”
