Unlimited: Co-heirs with Christ

and co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17b).
Paul has already said that we are heirs of God. But now he goes further. We are not only heirs, but we are co-heirs with Christ.
It is wonderful to be an heir, to know that you have been remembered. Heirs divide up the inheritance among themselves.
But a co-heir is different. A co-heir inherits the totality, alongside another. If there are two heirs, they both receive 100% each.
God has appointed Jesus Christ to be the heir of all things.
As co-heirs with Christ, God gives us all things, even eternal life:
All things are yours, 22 whether… the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, 23 and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God (1 Cor. 3:21-23.)
As co-heirs with Christ, God gives us all things, even eternal life.
Knowing that we are heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ gives us an amazing and incorruptible assurance of our salvation. We can face life with utmost confidence, for
Because of his grace he made us right in his sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life (Tit. 3:7, NLT.)
Praise God that he has brought us,
into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power (1 Pet. 1:4.)!
Are you living in the joy, peace and assurance of being a co-heir with Christ today? What is holding you back?
