THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

As we get older, things happen.
Things like WRINKLES!

Do you know how to avoid seeing wrinkles when you look in
the mirror.
Next time; take your glasses OFF!

Rom 8:17
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.

Light from the Word.

Being a person means wonderful things: chocolate, ice cream,
& fun in the sun.
Being a person also means suffering: arthritis, weight gain,
and WRINKLES!

Being a child of God means wonderful things!
Notice our Scripture says we are first, "children of God."
If you have trusted Christ, and have surrendered your life to Him,
then you are a "child of God."

That means two MORE wonderful things.
You are an "heir of God."
Being an heir of God means that you share EVERYTHING God has
to offer.

And you are a "joint-heir with Christ."
That means He is allowing you to share all things that God has put
in His power.
And God has put ALL things in His power!

We must remember though, that we are heirs in ALL THINGS!
Christ suffered for our sins.
He suffered so that mankind could have redemption.
And we too, must take the WRINKLES with the GLORY!
It is true, "without a cross, there can be no crown!"

Note what Paul says in verse 18 of this same passage:

PRESENTLY we suffer the agonies of physical life.
But AFTER we have passed from this life we shall inherit
GLORY with CHRIST!

So, letís take our worldly glasses OFF, and put our spiritual
glasses ON!

Love ya!
