Sons of God Have Inheritance In Christ

Romans 8:14-17- For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father! The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God. And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory. Those that are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. When you are born again, you receive a Spirit that produces sonship in you. You do not have a spirit that keeps you in bondage and slavery because slaves cannot partake in the inheritance of their master (Galatians 4:30). You can come to God and call Him, “Father, Father”, because He is your Father. The Spirit of God gives you an assurance in your spirit that truly you are a son of God.

You become an heir, with Christ, to everything that your Heavenly Father has because sons are entitled to inheritances from their father. Galatians 3:26-29 – For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. For as many [of you] as were baptized into Christ [into a spiritual union and communion with Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah] have put on (clothed yourselves with) Christ. There is [now no distinction] neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is not male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ [are in Him Who is Abraham's Seed], then you are Abraham’s offspring and [spiritual] heirs according to promise. (AMP)

If you belong to Christ, you are a seed of Abraham because Christ is a Seed of Abraham also. Consequently, you are an heir of Abraham and entitled to inherit God’s promises to him. A son is an heir! The reason that there is no distinction in Christ between Jew and Greek, slave and free, male and female is because we are dealing in spirits now. God is the Father of our spirits as long as we are in Christ.

Galatians 3:18 – For if the inheritance [of the promise depends on observing] the Law [as these false teachers would like you to believe], it no longer [depends] on the promise; however, God gave it to Abraham [as a free gift solely] by virtue of His promise. Inheritances are gifts! No one is required to work for a gift. If you work for a gift, it is no longer a gift. It becomes wages for your labor. If your natural parent leaves an inheritance that requires you to work to earn it, it ceases to be an inheritance. It has become wages for your work.

God has inheritance for His sons. They do not have to work for it. They just have to receive what is left for them. God gave it to Abraham as a free gift solely by virtue of His promise. Now, all the seed of Abraham are heirs and joint heirs with Christ to this promise. Receive your portion today in the name of Jesus Christ!
