Day 49 – A Joint Heir
We are Father God’s Heirs
Along with Jesus Christ
12So, brothers and sisters, we have no obligation to live the way our corrupt nature wants us to live. 13If you live by your corrupt nature, you are going to die. But if you use your spiritual nature to put to death the evil activities of the body, you will live. 14Certainly, all who are guided by God's Spirit are God's children. 15You haven't received the spirit of slaves that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the spirit of God's adopted children by which we call out, "Abba! Father!" 16The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. 17If we are his children, we are also God's heirs. If we share in Christ's suffering in order to share his glory, we are heirs together with him.

The literal meaning of is “someone who has been appointed to receive an inheritance.” An heir is a person who receives something of value from a father (see ). The Bible sometimes uses the word to describe us as recipients of a gift from God (). We are “heirs” of God, and Christ is our “co-heir” ()…” More Commentary @ http://www.gotquestions.org/heir-Bible.html

“[Romans] 8:10-17 - If the Spirit be in us, Christ is in us. He dwells in the heart by faith. Grace in the soul is its new nature; the soul is alive to God, and has begun its holy happiness which shall endure for ever. The righteousness of Christ imputed, secures the soul, the better part, from death. From hence we see how much it is our duty to walk, not after the flesh, but after the Spirit… Let us then, by the Spirit, endeavor more and more to mortify the flesh. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit brings a new and Divine life to the soul, though in a feeble state …” More Commentary @ http://biblehub.com/romans/8-14.htm

the Concept of the Father God?”
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him” (). This passage begins with a command: “See.” John wants us to observe the manifestations of the Father's love. He has introduced the subject of God’s love in the preceding chapter (, ), briefly discusses it here, and fully explains it in the fourth chapter. John’s purpose is to describe the kind of love the Father gives His children, “what great love.” The Greek word translated “what great” is found only six times in the New Testament and always implies astonishment and admiration…” More Commentary @ http://www.gotquestions.org/Father-God.html And at the Variety of Commentaries for 1 John 3:1 located @ http://biblehub.com/1_john/3-1.htm And http://biblehub.com/commentaries/1_john/3-1.htm @ Plus for1 John 2:5 @ http://biblehub.com/1_john/2-5.htm And at the Variety of Commentaries located @ http://biblehub.com/niv/1_john/2.htm Finally for for1 John 2:15 @ http://biblehub.com/1_john/2-15.htm and http://biblehub.com/commentaries/1_john/2-15.htm
