The Oxford Dictionary states that a heir is “the person who has the legal right to receive the property or the title of another person when they die.” He is “the person who will take over a position or job after the owner of the job dies.” There is heir-apparent, whose right to receive the family’s property, money or title cannot be taken away. There is also a heiress – a woman who will receive a lot of money, property or title when an older member of her family dies.
In all the cases mentioned above, one thing is clear; the heir has “legal right” to the property, money or title to be claimed. So it is in the case of born-again Christians who have no blemish or wrinkles in their character. They are Christ-like in everything they do or think. Satan cannot point at any sin about them before their Creator as it was in the case of Job (Job 1:1-12; Job 2:1-6).
When an unbeliever is converted to the faith, he becomes a new creature. Old things pass away. He no longer keeps bad friends. He then becomes a true child of God. It is only then that he becomes the heir of God. He enjoys all the rights Jesus Christ has before His Father – God. The new-born Christian becomes a co-heir with Christ. The born-again Christian no longer focuses on the things of the flesh (Gal. 5:19-21) but bears the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) because “they have crucified the flesh with the affection and lusts.” He lives in the Spirit and walk in Spirit. He died with Christ and has risen with Christ, too.
Whenever Jesus prays to His Father in heaven, God hears the prayer and does what His Son wants Him to do. The Bible has no record of any occasion Jesus prayed and the prayer was not answered. Why? It is because Jesus has that right to ask and receive. All co-heirs of God have that right, too! They receive from God. Are you a co-heir of God? The membership of the co-heirs of God is limitless; you, too, can acquire this membership freely given today. Also read Ephesians 4:20 – 5:7 for a new man in Christ.
Romans 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.”
Gracious and Eternal Father, I totally surrender my life to You. Remould me to Thy taste, Thou Porter of old, and give me a new heart to follow thee forever in Christ’s name. Amen.
