Joint Heirs with Christ

A powerful message from one of my favorite authors, C.H. Spurgeon

The boundless realms of his Father’s universe are Christ’s by prescriptive right.  As “heir of all things,” he is the sole proprietor of the vast creation of God, and he has admitted us to claim the whole as ours, by virtue of that deed of joint-heirship which the Lord hath ratified with his chosen people.  The golden streets of paradise, the pearly gates, the river of life, the transcendent bliss, and the unutterable glory, are, by our blessed Lord, made over to us for our everlasting possession.  All that he has he shares with his people. The crown royal he has placed upon the head of his Church, appointing her a kingdom, and calling her sons a royal priesthood, a generation of priests and kings.  He uncrowned himself that we might have a coronation of glory; he would not sit upon his own throne until he had procured a place upon it for all who overcome by his blood.

Crown the head and the whole body shares the honor.  Behold here the reward of every Christian conqueror! Christ’s throne, crown, scepter, palace, treasure, robes, heritage, are yours….”The glory which thou gavest me have I given them.”  “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.”

Delight my brothers and sisters in the reality of your divine heritage.  Rejoice, I say again rejoice in the knowledge of the glory and honor afforded us by our blessed Savior.  Sing a new song, for all Christ has is ours. He is ours and we are joint heirs with him.
