Well this is my favorite word from Romans 8:29! Let me give you the passage below.
For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers (ESV).
So why is brothers my favorite word in the verse? I cannot get over the fact that we are called brothers along with Christ! If we are brothers then we are entitled to the same inheritance He has. We are counted one with him.
I know some of you were picking apart the first part of the verse and there are times when we need to do such things. But for me right now, I need to know that Christ is my brother. That is an awe-inspiring way to look at this verse and this part of Romans 8. We are so much a part of the family of God, we are considered brothers with Christ! WOW! That’s all I can say, WOW!
