Claiming Our Birthright

In his epistle to the Romans, Paul says, "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and jointheirs with Christ."

In "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy has written (p. 181), "When we understand man's true birthright, that he is 'born, not ... of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God,' we shall understand that man is the offspring of Spirit, and not of the flesh; recognize him through spiritual, and not material laws; and regard him as spiritual, and not material."

Since these statements refer to the absolute truth about God and man, and their relationship, how important it is that we should grasp their significance and claim the truth they contain as our own!
