You Have an Inheritance

1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who are being protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

I had dinner with someone recently, and as he put down his knife and fork he said, “There you go. Another dinner closer to the grave.” Now there’s a cheery thought.

Around where I live, real estate prices are becoming so prohibitively expensive that there’s a whole generation of young people who’ll have to wait for their parents to die and leave them an inheritance, before they’ll be able to afford their own home. And of course, in most families, children can rely on the fact that they’ll inherit the lion’s share of their parents’ estate.

So why is it then, that so many Christians are uncertain about their inheritance from God?

Will I make it into heaven, or won’t I? Will it be everything I expect? Will God keep an inheritance for me?

The future can be a scary thing some days. Even more so, as we approach that final hurdle out of this life into the next.

So, in case you’re ever wondering, here’s the truth about your inheritance:

1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who are being protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

So, there it is. No matter what you have going on, God has an inheritance waiting in heaven for you that is, quote: “imperishable, undefiled and unfading.” And not only that, it’s an inheritance that He is actively protecting through His power.

It doesn’t get any better than that!

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
