What An Inheritance!
Last night as I was reading through the posts of my fellow bloggers I was tremendously blessed by the following verse published by Beholding Him ministry – Born again to a living hope.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:3-5)
After reading this scripture verse the only thing I could say is “What an inheritance!”
Humans on this earth are fighting over land, money, cars, houses, all the things that can perish.
At the puff of a mighty wind, all earthly treasures are gone in one day.
But, God has given us an imperishable inheritance through the Lord Jesus Christ.
An inheritance that is incorruptible.
This means that our inheritance cannot be perverted or bribed by money or otherwise.
It cannot be dissolved, disintegrated or decayed.
Our inheritance cannot be decomposed.
Our inheritance is honest and just because we serve a just God who is pure and righteous in all His ways.
God has given us an inheritance that is undefiled.
This means that it cannot be corrupted or polluted by anyone, not even the devil himself.
It is an inheritance that will never fade away.
This inheritance will last forever because it is preserved in heaven where neither moth nor rust cannot enter and where the devil cannot tread.
What an inheritance!
