Where would I get such a title – heir conditioning?
Are we not heirs? “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” (Romans 8:16, ESV)
Wait a minute! That said suffering!
“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” (James 1:2, ESV)
That makes the Christian life sound like some kind of bootcamp! Yes, it does. What is bootcamp? Physical and mental conditioning. Conditioning that makes us fit to be of service to our King.
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, (that’s conditioning) that the man of God (heir) may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16, ESV)
All scripture is useful for heir conditioning. Are you ready, oh heir, to be conditioned?
