An inheritance incorruptible . . . reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God. 1 Peter 1:4-5
A friend of mine spent several months rebuilding an old Ford Bronco and turning it into an off-road vehicle for use here in Idaho. He kept it in his garage under lock and key. When Christmas came, Gary thought, What better place to hide my daughter Katies present.
Shortly before Christmas, someone asked Katie what she was getting for Christmas. Oh, she replied, I already have it. Its a bicycle in a box under the Bronco in the garage!
I dont know what methods Katie used to discover her present. But I do admire her unshakable confidence that the bike was hers even though she did not yet have it in her hands.
That confidence reminds me of the apostle Peters words: [God] has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time (1 Peter 1:3-5).
What is reserved for us? Our inheritanceheaven, and a legacy beyond description that rests on the certainty of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began (Titus 1:2).
I am living for the moment
When before His feet I fall,
And with all the host of heaven
Own Him Lord and King of all.
A Christians future is as bright as the promises of God.
