This resonated in my heart this morning. May these words remind and encourage you of who you are: “The blood of heaven runs in your veins! You are one of the blood royal of eternity–a son of God, descendant of the King of kings!”
–Spurgeon, “The Sons of God“
Consider, I beg you, what a dignity God has conferred upon you by making you his son.
The tall archangel before the throne is not called God’s son–he is one of the most favored of his servants, but not God’s child.
I tell you, you ‘impoverished’ brother in Christ, there is a dignity about you that even angels may well envy. You in your poverty are as a sparkling jewel in the darkness of the mine.
You in the midst of your ‘sickness and infirmity’ are girt about with robes of glory, which make the spirits in heaven look down upon the earth with awe.
You move about this world as a prince among the crowd!
The blood of heaven runs in your veins! You are one of the blood royal of eternity–a son of God, descendant of the King of kings!
