A Word From Dr. Stanley

April 2020

Did you know your heavenly Father has an awesome inheritance for you? When you trusted Jesus as your Savior, you became God’s child—Romans 8:15 says you received a “spirit of adoption,” which allows you to call God Abba Father. And as a good human father would do, He’s provided a legacy for your future. It’s like an earthly inheritance in that we must wait for its benefits, but what we’ll receive is far greater than anything even the best parent in this world could give. Since salvation has made us “heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ” (Rom. 8:17), I encourage you to spend time this month learning from Jesus about life in God’s family, both now and eternally. He’s your elder brother (Heb. 2:11) and is sure to have some good advice.
