In continuation of the “Growth in Christ” series, Pastor Josh Engelhardt lead us through many scriptures referring to and describing the birth right of the firstborn son in the Old Testament, and then in the New Testament, where we learn that we, through God’s grace and the sacrifice of Jesus, are now heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ! We receive a double share of the blessings and inheritance the Lord has for us and we get to walk in the authority of and covenant relationship with Him. The questions we face are these: Am I walking in the way of the first born? Where in my life am I living in less than the double portion the Lord gave me? If the answer is: yes, I live in less, what can I do about it?
Romans 8: 16-17, 37
