Yet if children, enjoyers also of an allotment, enjoyers, indeed, of an allotment from God, yet joint enjoyers of Christ’s allotment (Romans 8:17, CLNT).
In Christ we have been made partakers of the allotment of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through the Son, we have been brought into union with all that the Father has. We never could have dreamed up such a thing in our wildest imaginations. As with all that we have through our union with Christ, if it was not the record of Scripture itself we must surely oppose it as pure blasphemy.
We will not take full possession of our allotment until the resurrection. We must not forget as we labor through our days that we are sons of the Father, and that He is the “possessor of heaven and earth” – of all things.
We currently live in “this present evil age,” but we have a divine calling on our lives. We are to walk here as God’s Own sons – shining as lights – and doing so changes our approach to and outlook about the many diverse details of our earthly lives.
The nations are to be joint enjoyers of an allotment, and a joint body, and joint partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus, through the evangel (Ephesians 3:6, CLNT).
