TITLE: Joint Heirs With Christ

A dying judge, the day before his departure to be with Christ, said to his pastor, "Do you know enough about law to understand what is meant by joint-tenancy?"

"No," was the reply. "I know nothing about law, I know a little about grace, and that satisfies me."

"Well," he said, "if you and I were joint-tenants on a farm, I could not say to you: ‘That is your hill of corn, and this is mine; that is your stalk of wheat, and this is mine; that is your blade of grass, and this is mine; but we should share and share alike in everything on the place.' I have just been lying here, and thinking with unspeakable joy, that Jesus Christ has nothing apart from me, that everything he has is mine, and we will share and share alike through all eternity."
