Message from Pastor Don ~ July 16th 2020

From Romans
“we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ—if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him”.

The promise is two-fold. We are children of God. That is wonderful to hear in these days when we are so fearful of all that is going on around us. What a wonderful Heavenly Father we have that gives us more good than we deserve because He is our loving father. We are beloved children.

The second promise is that we are joint heirs with Christ, heirs to the heavenly kingdom. With that victory we will be glorified before God just like the human Jesus was glorified. Jesus tells us the saved will shine like the sun (gospel for this Sunday). On the day of our going we will be received in pure whiteness fully cleansed from pain and suffering and whole again.
