"One Year Bible" New Testament Passage (for Tues., Sept. 18, 2012)
Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all. Galatians 4:1 (NKJV)
It is an awesome thing to discover your NEW IDENTITY IN CHRIST. Through Jesus you have become royalty. You have undergone a massive transformation from slavery to freedom to rulership. God has called you to a high place.
There is a force however that seeks to hold you in your former identity. It seeks to draw you back into old ways. This is one of the great battles. Every Christian faces.
We must learn a new way to live - a new way to think - a new way to operate. Even though you have EVERYTHING, you can still live as if you have NOTHING. We live like beggars, when all along we are millionaires.
So, the Lord calls us to GROW UP. Have done with childish ways. Stand up today as a son or daughter of the King. You have a rich inheritance. You must learn what it is, and how to draw upon it. God is looking for SONS.
