We Are Joint Heirs with Christ

SCRIPTURE:

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; (Romans 8:16–17)

DEVOTIONAL:

We Are Joint Heirs with Christ

So what am I saying this month as we’ve studied “seeding for the billion flow”? Commit to letting God use you to finance this end-time harvest. To be a distribution center for the kingdom, and have the world witness the success of the body of Christ and be drawn into it. God wants to take the wealth of the sinner and bring it over into our hands. Are you ready? As one man said, “Can you stand to be blessed!”

This kind of wealth is not “just for us four and no more,” or to be put away in banks and never used. No. It’s supposed to flow; that’s why we call it currency. It’s the “Billion Flow.” We should be thinking about how we can help people in India or Africa or Haiti; how we can put up entrepreneurial centers, hospitals, and orphanages, and how we can get food and dig wells in drought-stricken areas of the world. You get the idea?

The Bible says, “You are heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ.” This means God sees us as His “royal family.” You must see yourself the same way if you want to receive the inheritance He has for you.

So, whether a billion souls or a billion dollars, start thinking big so the Big God we serve can do big things—in you and through you!

PRAYER:

Dear God, open my spiritual eyes and understanding to do my part to bring a harvest of souls into Your Kingdom. Thank you for Your many blessings in my life. Help me to use the talents and resources You’ve given me with wisdom, generosity and compassion toward others. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
