We are plainly instructed by the Apostle Paul that we are Joint heirs with Jesus Christ. “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; buy ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together,” (Rom. 8:25-17). “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom,” (Lk. 12:32).
The focal point in the history of salvation is the cross of Jesus Christ. The significance of this act is viewed under several figures of speech in the New Testament (see Atonement); whether it is spoken of as a ransom paid to redeem enslaved man, an acquittal before the divine bar of justice, or a victory over sin and death, it is clear throughout the effective powers in salvation belongs to God and not to man. Salvation is a free gift of God granted to lost and undeserving men who trust in the righteousness of Christ and humble themselves in submission to his will.
