And since we are His children, we are His heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share His glory, we must also share His suffering.
Romans 8: 17 (NLT)
Jesus came to share in the human experience with us. He knows the sufferings we face. He fully experienced those and beyond. Nothing surprises him about our troubles here on earth.
We are joint heirs with Jesus. None of this ‘the first born only get the good stuff’ for us. We are co heirs with Jesus. In other words, we share in God’s glory too!
This is huge! I’m still trying to wrap my brain around that fully. Yes, I have sufferings. To be honest this last year has felt like a blur of sufferings for my family.
We’ve come to know our fair share of joy’s though. There has been a glimpse of the great glory God has for us as well through countless blessings we’ve experienced.
Through the miracle of this past year we’ve also been given a huge gift. The opportunity to share the good news of God’s saving power.
Jesus freely shares himself with you, share yourself freely with HIM!
