“Cane Corso or Italian Mastiff” Brooklyn’s owner replied when I asked the breed of his massive dog. What immediately struck me was how majestic Brooklyn appeared. He was definitely owning his lineage.

We, also, are owners of a royal lineage, but how many of us walk in it daily?

We are told:

I am an heir with the Father and a joint heir with Christ. Galatians 4:6-7; Romans 8:17

I am chosen and ordained by Christ to bear fruit. John 15:16

I am more than a conqueror through Christ. Romans 8:37

I am a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. 1 Peter 2:9

I am a recipient of every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1:3

Remember the price Jesus paid for us to obtain this new identity.

Beloved Father, open our minds to walk in the blessed existence purchased by your son’s death. Bring to our memory the many benefits of being your beloved children. Help us live the life you have for each one of us to our fullest through your love and direction. Amen.
