Sharing in Christ’s Glory
Julio C. Rivas, CS
All who follow the leading of God’s Spirit are God’s own sons. Nor are you meant to relapse into the old slavish attitude of fear—you have been adopted into the very family circle of God and you can say with a full heart, “Father, my Father”. The Spirit himself endorses our inward conviction that we really are the children of God. Think what that means. If we are his children we share his treasures, and all that Christ claims as his will belong to all of us as well! Yes, if we share in his suffering we shall certainly share in his glory. (Phillips, Rom. 8:14-17)
Eddy: “The belief in sin and death is destroyed by the law of God, which is the law of Life instead of death, of harmony instead of discord, of Spirit instead of the flesh.” And, “Jesus marked out the way. Citizens of the world, accept the ‘glorious liberty of the children of God,’ and be free! This is your divine right.”
Spiritual comprehension, or Christ, compels us to bury an egotistical, corporeal, sinful, sick-bound misconception of who we are. We can revel in our immaculate, magnificent, SOUL-authorized, matter-free selfhood. Christ-sense is morphing difficulties, failures, sufferings and faults into sublime victories. With adventurous expectation we welcome MOTHER-FATHER-LOVE’s new lessons, plus augmented resources, abilities and attainments.
A patient with an advanced stage of cancer experienced a radical change in their thinking and character, and a glorious healing of their body by imbibing these sin-disease-obliterating insights.
Having absorbed more of our SOUL-enforced wholeness, and while celebrating our marvelous SPIRIT-bestowed inheritance, we can declare, “I am ready, MOTHER-FATHER-LOVE, for my next spiritually enhancing adventure.”
