Royalty

What is your favorite bible verse? One day I was reading my bible, when I came across this verse.

“But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive the full rights of sons. Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.” Galatians 4:4-7(NIV)

This passage excites me. As an heir, I get to inherits that is of my father. So what does my father have? According to Revelations, Jesus is the “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” So that makes me an heir to the king.

I often ask my youth group, “That if we are an heir to the king, then what does that make us?” Their response is, “That makes us princes and princesses.” So, if we are princes and princesses, then how should we act? We should act like the royalty that Christ has made us. After all, we were created in the image of God himself.(Genesis 1:26)

Don’t ever feel like you are worthless, that is not how God sees you. He sees royalty.
