Heir of God: an excerpt from Darrell Benton’s New Book “Heal the Sick”
Galatians 4:7 says, “Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.” We are sons and daughters of almighty God. Take a moment and let this verse sink into your heart and mind. Reflect on how amazing this fact is. When you grasp this idea, you will never again be the same. Jesus wasn’t kidding when He said, “When you give up your life, you gain it.” Let this really sink in- “an heir of God through Christ.” RADICAL STATEMENT !!! I know that my flesh is no good and I fall short of the Glory of God. However, I also know that I am a new creation in Christ. 2nd Cor. 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” So I don’t concentrate on the fact that I am not worthy (through my flesh), but instead that I am a new creation and can do all things through Christ. The enemy wants me to think that I am not worthy. But I am worthy because I am a co-labor of Jesus Christ. I am Royalty. And you are too! Embrace your new identity as a co-laborer and forget about the old you.
