Heirs OF God,
The portion of Romans chapter eight is one that gives the greatest anticipations for the Glory of Heaven and everlasting life. How those who have trusted in Christ are adopted Children of the living, infinite God of Heaven and how we share in the inheritance of Christ.
Why wait before you turn to the Lord? To what end is this temporary life and all its endeavours, when you can live with divine purpose and a calling that is absolute and an inheritance that can never fade away? Why would you go from the darkness of this temporary world and then into the darkness of eternal damnation, WHEN HOPE IS LAID BEFORE YOU?
To what end is madness such as that?
Only Jesus Christ offers the reward of everlasting life, ONLY HE has ever said and promised;
“I give unto them eternal life and they shall never perish”(John 10:28a)
The passage in the Bible speaks volumes with regard to being an Heir of God and joints heirs with Christ.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 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. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.Romans 8:16-18
Several are the considerations that the passage alludes to and are explained in the sermon.
The Exalted State Of Our Relationship
The Inheritance Gained By Our Relationship
The Experience Shared Through Our Relationship
The Comparative Glory In Our Relationship
To the Christian knowing he is saved, it is the most incredible hope to have, it is infinite in its scope and the mind of man certainly cannot even begin to comprehend;
with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;Ephesians 3:18
