Heirs with Christ

Romans 8

12 o Therefore, brethren, we are debtors - not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For p if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you q put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For r as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For s you did not receive the spirit of bondage again t to fear, but you received the u Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, v "Abba, 1 Father." 16 w The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then x heirs - heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, y if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
