Heirs of the Kingdom #8
At the Lord's last supper, He elevated the Lord's Table meaning timing, preparation, and anticipation (Luk 22:14-20, Heb 10:17). Any member not in fellowship violates the meaning of what happened on the cross (1Co 11:23-34). The bread represents the body of Christ. Jesus came into the world to die on the cross (1Co 11:24). The cup represents His blood, the work of salvation (1Co 11:25).

Heirs of the Kingdom' have privilege responsibility and accountability (Mar 13:33?37). 'Heirs' is a term that deals with discipleship not justification or salvation. As we shall see every child of God is an heir. The questions before us are: How much will I inherit and will it really matter that much? Every member of the Royal Family has a share in the Royal Inheritance. Again the question of our study is ?how much?? Peter stresses in three words that our inheritance cannot?in any way?be defiled or diminished by our failure or conduct in this life. Paul speaks as sons ?being led? by the Spirit as ?adult sons? (huioi) and shows a distinction between heirs and ?joint heirs with Christ.? One is unconditional based on sonship; the other is conditional based on conduct.
