THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Q: How can you avoid spotting a wrinkle every time you
walk by a mirror?
A: The next time you're in front of a mirror, take off your
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.
Living on earth means experiencing wonderful things like:
chocolate, ice cream, & fun in the sun.
Living on earth also means experiencing suffering:
arthritis, weight gain, and WRINKLES!
Being a child of God means wonderful things!
We are, "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."
You share EVERYTHING God has to offer.
You are a "joint-heir with Christ."
He is allowing you to share all things that God has put in His power.
And God has put ALL things in His power!
Jesus is willing to share:
His righteousness, holiness, Love, compassion, and
SO much more!
One day, the indescribable glory of heaven and immortality,
will be yours!
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:
"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy
to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."
PRESENTLY we suffer the agonies of physical life.
But after we have passed from this life we shall inherit GLORY!
Ain't God GOOD?
Experience the WRINKLES, look for the GLORY!
