When or if we think about being an heir it’s most often after someone in our family has died. If they are considered wealthy or have a little something, something it’s passed down to whom they have designated, hopefully, you. But an heir is everyone be they healthy-infirmed, indigent-wealthy, or righteous-sinner. Every one of us fit in here or did at some point in our lifetime.
We are not just children of GOD but we are children of faith and we must be so as Abraham was because we are descended from him, Gal. 3:29. Also, when we are baptized in the Holy Spirit, He agrees with our spirit and we don’t feel irritated in any way regarding the true manner of JESUS. And because JESUS is in us and we are in HIM we are entitled to possess according to scripture.
No one is left out of the promise of GOD if you desire to be a partaker of the same body in CHRIST. The key word here partake. We all have to take part in and share in the commonality of what CHRIST JESUS requires of us. We can’t cherry pick what suits us best this is not how living by faith works. We read, study and place our faith/trust in a particular area in which we are giving to the FATHER through CHRIST JESUS to mold and train us in HIS perfect way. Our problem is that we are trying to do it all in one fell swoop or on our own, it can’t and won’t be done this way. And it will not be done through condemnation and judgment. The Word of GOD will convict and if we really desire to be in right standing with the FATHER we will not try to hide and cover ourselves with self-righteousness as Adam and Eve did but we will allow the Word of GOD to cover us with HIS grace, love, and mercy.
There are six important factors we must have when the Holy Spirit lives on the inside of us, Eph. 3:16-18.
- Be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.
- Be rooted and grounded in love.
- Be able to comprehend with all the saints.
- The width, length, depth, height
- Know the love of CHRIST.
- Be filled with all the fullness of GOD.
Romans 8:16-17, Ephesians 3:6
