S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
The Apostle Paul wrote to the Galatians, who were in jeopardy of giving up all the grace they had received from Jesus in return for their “old law” nature. Here the Apostle says the old law was not for freedom but for bondage. It was really a form of slavery. When Jesus came, however, we were set free. We’re no longer slaves, but God’s children.
Sure parents rule, but if you’re a child of the parent you have free run of the place. At least that’s what I remember growing up in my parents’ world. I knew what they had was mine in time. I knew I was an heir. They set me up to win. But Jesus set us up even better. He made us joint heirs with Him to all the Father has. We have full run of the place and we should live like it. Too often we let the devil turn us into beggars, like we live outside of Dad’s favor. But nothing could be further from the truth for a “Follower of Jesus.” The truth today is, “I’m God’s Child, And So Are You!”
Thank You this AM that You made me a joint heir with You to all the Father has. I’m no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God! Amen
