Slaves do not get an inheritance, Sons do.
We have found ourselves a New hope in Jesus. Now, we have eternity to look forward to. An inheritance kept for us in heaven.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, (1 Peter 1:3)
Paul writes to the believers, called in Christ, the elect, partners with Christ and sons of God. He opens his letter with giving thanks to God for the gift of salvation.
Then he looks forward, into the future. A pledge of future glory ( 1 Peter 1:3-9)
Are you living your life through eyes of eternity?
Inheritance calls for ownership. We ought to leave with vision of the church, kingdom, eternity.
Do you leave with a sense of calling? We are His workmanship. ( Ephesians 2:10)
Jesus does not want you to do anything FOR Him. He wants to do everything WITH you.
We are the church,The called out ones. The church is the construction site of God. Any other activity on earth is just a scaffolding . It’s all fading away. Let not your possessions own you.
Get busy with the things that last forever.
How are you treating the bride of Christ. ( Ephesians 1:19) We leave for the benefit of the body of Christ. Priests serve and tend to the bride.
