Our identity as sons and daughters of the King through Christ affords us full access to everything that is in the Kingdom of God. Jesus said, ” Do not be afraid My little children for it is the Father’s pleasure to give you the Kingdom.”(Luke 12:32) Not just a part of it but all of it. All that is in heaven is wrapped up in our inheritance.
Our inheritance is what we administer to this world to transform it. In love, we serve the world and release heaven’s reality to earth. Paul wrote in Galatians and said, “And because you are sons, God has sent forth His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” (Galatians 4:6-7). From our innermost being comes out the cry of the Spirit of the Son of God. It is the cry for union, for intimacy, for revelation of His glory in and through us!
As we allow the Spirit to lead us deeper into God we experience the eternal union of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in perfect love. Jesus prayed for this reality saying, “that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.” (John 17:21) Our being one with Him awakens the world into faith – that the Father sent Jesus.
There is another cry resounding throughout the ages. Paul wrote in Romans that “For the eagerly awaiting creation waits for the revealing of the sons and daughters of God…the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.” (Read Romans 8:19-22). As we embrace our true identity as sons and daughters of God and live in and from Christ, the creation finds freedom from the bondage of sin and corruption. The groaning is for our revealing — to finally live in the newness of life, the new reality in Christ. The Father has set us up to transform a world prepared and longing to see the glory of Christ in us!
May our lives reflect and demonstrate the new living reality we have in Christ. Paul writes, “If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, old things have passed away behold new things have come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17) May everything we do show the world that indeed Christ is in us and that we are in Christ.
