Are You Really a Child of God? (Part 2) (Galatians 4:7)Tommy Boring, August 26, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
There's a big difference between thinking and knowing. When you don't know for sure, there is a constant doubt and fear. If you are a child of God, you are no longer a servant but a son. A servant doesn't have an inheritance. We are the children of God and we will receive an inheritance. There are a lot of folks that will say and work all the time that they are saved. There is only one way to be born again and that's through Jesus Christ. Those in Christ have been promised a joy that no one can imagine. We did not deserve it. There are many that do not want the title, child of the King. Some want it but do not want to walk it. Roman 8:16 The Spirit will bear witness with yours if you have been saved. If you've been saved, live like it with your head held high knowing the promises that God has given to us. Does the Spirit bear witness with yours? Those that think they are saved and those that are impostors will not get Gods inheritance. If your saved then you are an heir to God but not only that but, a joint heir to Jesus Christ. So what do we that are saved get as an inheritance? 1 Peter 1:3-5 A lively hope. Since Jesus came, died, and was resurrected, that makes our hope alive and not dead. The inheritance can not be corrupted and it can't be defiled. It will never fade away, it will last forever. It is reserved, just for you, waiting on you in heaven. Ephesians 1:14, we are just waiting, sealed for God until the day of redemption. Rev 21:4 What we find important here on earth is what we will walk on in heaven. Fine jewels and pearls are used to build things that we destroy with no thought on earth daily. So are you really an heir?
