Our Inheritance

1 Peter 1:3-4 KJV 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, [4] To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
 
When we trust Jesus as our Savior, we are born into God’s family. As a member of God’s family, we have a very special inheritance. this inheritance includes a lively (living) hope. This hope is an eternity in heaven. Our inheritance is also incorruptible, undefiled, and does not fade. This means that it is not subject to the whims of a earthly economy. It is not based on the actions of mankind. Our inheritance is based on the perfect and complete work of Jesus Christ. As we go through each day, let’s remember the inheritance that is given to us as God’s children.
