Remembering Your Heritage

"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together." (Romans 8:16-17 NKJV) We are ALL children of God. And, as such we are all part of a royal family. We should therefore present ourselves as royalty and allow ourselves to be presented as such. God gives us His best, and in return expects us to do our best and live our best. This does not mean we are to act haughty, snobbish, or self-centered. We are to be giving, loving, and caring...and we are to hold others to this standard. By following God's example, we should expect the same of ourselves and of others. Often we make the mistake of compromising down when we shouldn't. This only cheats ourselves. Let us hold ourselves and others to the standard of a royal, because that is who we are. Love, Beau
