Sonship = Heirship

Last Sunday we looked at OUR CHANGE IN POSITION and ended on this note:
So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.
Galatians 4:7
I am still praying through and pondering the ramifications and implications of this verse.  We are no longer slaves to sin (Romans 6) and, as if that weren't enough, we have been made heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).
We closed the service by challenging folks to read through the whole New Testament to discover the promises made to the believer in Jesus Christ and those things that belong to His co-heirs.  It only takes 15 hours, at a "normal reading pace" to read the entire New Testament.  What a solid investment that would be for every believer.
If you are an heir... why not find out what belongs to you?
