1 Peter 1:4 – “….. we have a priceless inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.”
We yearn for that day that we’ll go home to be with our precious Savior forever. We yearn to receive our inheritance and spend all eternity in the enjoyment of it (Him). But we have a priceless inheritance right here on earth, right here, right now, that is living and enduring (James 1:18, 2Timothy 3:16), passed down through the ages to us through the blood of generations past. Yes, it is God’s Word contained in the Holy Bible. It is a foretaste of glory divine. It is that which whets our appetites for more; “O taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8, Rev.19:7). It prepares us to appreciate what is in store for us as we go through the desert of this life (2Corinthians 4:16-18), and guides us as to where we should focus our eyes as we run this race (2Cor.4:18, Hebrews 12:1-2). It has promises which literally sustain us day by day (Psalm 119:49-50). It exhorts us to keep our eyes peeled heavenward as our redemption is on the way, and is one day closer than yesterday. Yes, we have an inheritance from Jesus Himself, right here, right now! Do we treasure it as we should? ……..to be fulfilled (Revelation 22:20).
“May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s holy People.” Amen.
