"For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!" The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs- heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him."
Together with Jesus, we will be glorified in the end!
When you put your faith in Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins, God says that you were united with Christ. Jesus became intertwined with your past, bearing the guilt of your failings before God. But in the same connection, you became intertwined with his future!
Your life experiences may have given you a depressed view of your worth in life. But listen to what God is saying to you in this passage today. To him, you are so very valuable. He has made you a fellow heir with Christ-an heir of his glory, of his love, of his promises. Don't ignore what God is saying to you about your true worth.
