“Heirs of Grace”

Key Verse

“And because ye are sons, God hath sent the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” (Galatians 4:6,7).

Text — Galatians 4:1-7


When you accept Christ, you are adopted as a genuine heir of God. The act of adoption was a magnificent legal transaction in the days of Paul. Sometimes a wealthy man had no heir and he would select one of his own slaves and adopt him as a son who will enjoy inheritance. No longer a slave, the adopted son had ownership in the father’s estate. Imagine the transformation! A slave becomes an heir!

God’s redemptive plan has always been greater than freeing you from the tyranny of sin.  It has always been to make us heirs – to give us an inheritance, a territory, a realm of spiritual influence. You were adopted because you were loved. You were adopted because you have a rich Father in heaven who wants to pour out a spiritual inheritance in your life. God is the Subject, Initiator and Actor. We are the recipients. Beloved, start living your life as one who is spiritually rich, empowered to bless the world. Run the race of life as an heir with confidence, not as an orphan in fear.


A slave becomes an heir!


Be saved and become a joint heir with Christ.

Prayer for today

 Lord, make me a part of the heirs of grace.
