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’re 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!
