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.
Membership in God’s family brings privileges – all God’s children are heirs of God. An heir eventually inherits their father’s estate. All that the Father has is ours. We have not yet come into the possession and enjoyment of all of it, but nothing can prevent our doing so in the future. We are joint heirs with Christ. When He returns to take the scepter of universal government, we will share with Him the title deeds to all of the Father’s wealth.
