All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. 1 Peter 1:3-4 NLT
God’s plan for our redemption through faith in Jesus Christ goes beyond saving us from sin. Sin is just an aberration that cut us short of the grace and glory of God and brought us under divine punishment which includes death, both physical and spiritual.
Now that we have been redeemed, forgiven and cleansed from all our sins by the blood of Jesus, God has now offered us sonship and He made us His heirs. As sons and heirs according to the promise, we have been given the right to share in the inheritance of His holy people.
This inheritance is not just material things that can spoil, fade or destroy. God Himself is our heritage. Everything that God has, all His power, all His wisdom, all His creation are laid up for us to inherit not only here on earth but throughout eternity.
However, we will only qualify to receive our inheritance only when we have become matured in the Lord and you have reached the fullness of the stature of Christ. May the Lord by His Holy Spirit help you to maximize all His provisions for your spiritual growth in Jesus name. Good morning and do have a fruitful week.
