Not only are you the heir of the King as His adopted child, but you are also a joint-heir of Jesus.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” 7 Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Spurgeon said this about being a joint-heir:
It means, first of all, that our right to the divine heritage stands or falls with Christ’s right to the same inheritance. We are co-heirs; if he be truly an heir, so are we; and if he be not, neither are we. Our two interests are intertwined and made one, we have neither of us any heirship apart from the other; we are joint heirs, Christ jointly with us; ourselves jointly with Christ. So, then, it follows that if there be any flaw in the will, so that it be not valid, if it be not rightly signed, sealed, and delivered, then it is no more valid for Christ than it is for us. http://www.spurgeon.org/sermons/0402.htm
Whatever Jesus has, You have!
It is not portioned out – it is equal measurements.
So if Christ has it, You have it!
This is our Covenant, these are our rights, this is our legal position. Some have said to me, “Who do you think you are to try to make God do what you want Him too,” I say, “I’m a child of the King, I don’t have to make Him, manipulate Him, because the Father wants, and desires to bless me.” If this was not His desire, then why would Father make us joint-heirs with His Son Jesus?
We MUST stop living substandard!
We are King’s kids!
