RCCG: JOINT HEIR WITH CHRISTR

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE : SUNDAY 26 JUNE 2016
THEME : JOINT HEIRS WITH CHRIST
Memorise:
The Spirit itself beareth witness with
our spirit, that we are the children of
God: Romans 8:16
Read : Romans 8:14-17
14 For as many as are led by the
Spirit of God, they are the sons of
God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit
of bondage again to fear; but ye have
received the Spirit of adoption,
whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness
with our spirit, that we are the
children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs
of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if
so be that we suffer with him, that
we may be also glorified together.
Message
As joint heirs with Christ Jesus, we
are to live according to the direction
of the Spirit of God because we are
the children of God. This will involve
having absolute faith in God. It is
only those who have submitted to
the will of God that can be identified
as joint heirs with Christ. Those who
allow the flesh and human emotions
to rule over then cannot be called
the children of God. As joint heirs
with Christ, it is Christ that
determines the direction of our lives.
As joint heirs, we have tremendous
privileges. We have been adopted by
Jesus to have glorious experiences in
life. The implication of this is that all
that God makes available to Jesus
can be equally accessible to us. This
is why you need to have a closer
relationship with Him, because it is
the extent of your relationship with
Him that determines your placement
in life.
“Those that be planted in the house
of the Lord shall flourish in the
courts of our God.” Psalms 92:13
You can be anything you want to be
before the Almighty God. You can
step beyond the level of being called
a servant to a son. Sons have
tremendous opportunities that
servants don’t enjoy. When you are a
son of Jesus, you can be sure that all
His goodness and mercy shall follow
you, because those are part of your
eternal rights in Him.
Jesus is the original King maker.
While others may be reigning, He will
allow you to rule. While others are
struggling to occupy positions, He
may just choose you to become
relevant in the scheme of things. This
we saw in the life of Daniel. Daniel
was never a King, in fact, he
witnessed the reign of three rulers,
yet, he was the one calling the shots.
He has access to divine and hidden
secrets of the Most High God. While
in Egypt, Pharaoh was the king, but
Joseph was the one in charge. Even
in Potiphars house, everyone was
living at the mercy of Joseph. Jesus
can make you reign over the affairs
of men, this is why you must not
allow anything to stage between you
and Jesus Christ. If you have gone
astray, He is waiting to take away
your filth as a sinner and cleanse you
to present you as a saint. Calling
Abba father implies your trust in
Him, your reliance upon Him and the
fact that you seek your direction
through Him. With this, we will have
the witness of the Holy Spirit that we
are truly the sons of God. We are
children of covenant and every
covenant of God concerning you shall
be fulfilled in Jesus name. No matter
what we go through, we must never
deviate from Him because if we
suffer with Him, we shall also reign
with Him.
Action Point:
Are you a son or a servant ?
