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 privilege, as all of God’s children are heirs of God. An heir is one who eventually inherit their father’ estate. Because of adoption, all that the Father has is ours. We have not yet come into the possession and enjoyment of it all, but nothing can prevent our doing so in the future.
