Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to 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, uncorrupted and unfading, kept in heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:3-4 HCSB
Some have grown up in a family that has been richly blessed financially and expect in the future to inherit a good sum of money from their parents. Growing up in a minister’s home I never went without, but we always struggled to make ends meet. I really do not expect to inherit a large some of money nor to leave a large sum of money for my children, but I have a richer inheritance that is not based upon finances.
Peter reminds believers that as believers we have the hope and promise of a great inheritance. As children of God we all will have a richer inheritance, eternal life in heaven with God and Jesus Christ. It will never fade away; it will never perish.
Challenge: Praise God! Thank Him for all he has done for you, especially for the great inheritance of eternal life that you have been given because of what Jesus Christ did for you on on the cross.
