Reading Romans chapter eight in The Passion Translation for the first time was refreshing and enlightening. The language is directed from God’s passion toward us; motivating me to lean into him like the disciple John did at the last Passover meal. Parking on this chapter for eight days would indeed be a feast on destiny and belonging.
“And since we are his true children, we qualify to share all his treasures, for indeed, we are heirs of God himself. And since we are joined to Christ, we also inherit all that he is and all that he has.”
I’m a child who has been taken by the hand and ushered into a treasury stacked with more wealth than I can apprehend. Then I am told, “I’m going to teach you how to use this. It is my Father’s good pleasure to give you all of this.” (Eph. 1:9-12, 2:7, 3:8, 1 Cor. 2:6-13, Heb 11:24-26)
