An Adventurously Expectant Life - August 20, 2018

As a child of God, “this resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life.  It’s adventurously expectant…greeting  God with a childlike, ‘What’s next, Papa?’  God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are.  We know who he is, and we know who we are:  Father and children.  And we know we are going to get an unbelievable inheritance!” (Romans 8:15-17 MSG).

God says, “Hey, Lucado.  You are an heir to the joy of Christ.  Why not ask Jesus to help you?”  “And you, Mr. Without-a-Clue.  Aren’t you an heir to God’s storehouse of wisdom?”  “Mrs. Worrywart, Why do you let fears steal your sleep?  Are you not a beneficiary of God’s trust fund?”  Approach God’s throne not as an interloper but as a child of the living and loving God!  Because God’s promises are unbreakable, our hope is unshakable.
