Sons Of God Are Heirs To The Kingdom

6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.  7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.  (Galatians 4:6-7) 

One of the beliefs of our Christian faith is that we have been adopted into the family of God.  We were not originally of His family but when we accept Christ, we are adopted as His Sons.  Since we are His Sons, He has therefore sent the Spirt of His Son (Jesus Christ) into our hearts.  This is the presence of the Holy Spirit.  In the Jewish culture, when one was adopted, three things happened.  (1) The adopted son was adopted permanently. (2) The adopted son immediately had all rights of a legitimate son.  (3) The adopted son immediately lost all rights of his previous family.  When we were adopted by God to be His sons, we were adopted permanently which means eternal security.  We immediately received all rights of a legitimate son which means everlasting peace and heir to the kingdom of God.  We immediately lost all rights of our previous family which was to live as we please and end up in eternal damnation.  We are now sons and heirs to the kingdom of God.  Hold your head up, you are the son of a king.
