Heirs through the Spirit.

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many you as were baptized into Christ, have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus, and if you are Christ’s then, you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:26-29)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:3-5) 
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors–not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”  The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, then–heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. (Romans 8:12-17)
 
Every believer has been made an heir of God, our Father (Matthew 25:34; Galatians 3:26-29, Ephesians 1:11; Colossians 1:12, 3:24; Hebrews 6:12, 9:15; 1 Peter 1:4)
