Romans 8:17

"Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory." NIV

"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." KJV

We know the legal children are the heirs of their parents, and when the parents die, the children receive all that the parents possess. How amazing it is that God adopted us as His legal children because of what Christ, His only Son, did for us. We are now brothers and sisters with Jesus Christ, co-heirs of God the Father. Unlike it is here on earth, God the Father will not die to give us what he possesses. He will give us the promised paradise of eternal life with him. If we suffer trials through this life as Christ did, we will receive the glorious reward that Christ Himself receives.

Heavenly Father, we are in awe that You loved us so much You provided a way to adopt us as You own. Help us to live so others will recognize the family resemblance. The only way we can thank you is to give our hearts and lives to You. In Jesus' name.
