Favourite permissible?

If one is permitted to have a favourite book in the Bible, mine would most definitely be the book of Romans.

If a favourite chapter is permissible, mine is most definitely Romans chapter 8.

... and verse?

Well, all of them! Especially because it declares the end and the beginning. The end to the last enemy and the beginning of LIFE for evermore (us in oneness with Jesus forever).

Should I be specific?

Let me specifically share with you verses 14-17 and the impact it should have on our lives and how we live it.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
We are being led

Verse 14 says we are led. Led. Led in the Greek is agō meaning: to be led and moved, encouraged (remember that the HS is the Encourager).

Jesus takes much care throughout John 14 to 17 to teach us about the Encourager. He is the paraklētos explained by Jesus in John 15:26 in fine detail as the One, the -
Para - to be beside (even inside)
Kaleo - to call (continuously)
... an Encourager, Helper, Comforter, Counselor, Intercessor, Director to lead believers into a greater apprehension and in the power of the Gospel, of the Truth.

Jesus said that He would not leave us orphans

When Jesus says that He will not leave us orphans, but will send us His Spirit instead, He is saying that we shall find and be moved by the very Spirit of Life inside us.

The Spirit of God is the Spirit of Life. He is the precious Spirit of Love and Love casts out fear (1 John 4:18). Therefore we can not be bound because of the Spirit of Love Who deals with fear by our permissive choice. 

We are not bound by law, except for one: the Perfect Law of Liberty, Christ Jesus Himself (Jas 2:12). This new Law frees us to come boldly to Father Abba, just like a child saying Daddy Daddy! (remember my post on Abba Abba?)

We are heirs!

What rights does an heir have?

All. An heir has all the rights he inherited. All!

all authority,

all privileges,

all generosity,

all benefits,

all gains,

all blessings,

all dominion,

all tenure


What does it mean?

Well, to start with it means that we do not have to accept anything that the enemy confronts us with.

Not sickness.

Not adversity.

Not poverty.

Not insults.

Not lack.

Not theft.

Not damage.

Not accident.

Not left behind.

Not destitute.

Not defeat.

Not bondage.

Not powerless.

Not depression.

Not suppression.

Not hopeless.

Not inadequate.

... no setback!

And because we have suffered with Him (and He did the suffering on our behalf. And we are raised with Him.), we are glorified with Him.

Where does that leave us?

Simple ...

In a position of heir-ship. In a position of authority and dominion even in this world right here and right now!

Glory to Jesus!
