A priceless eternal inheritance

December 3rd, 2018

1 Peter 1:3-4 NLT – 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, [4] 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.

This passage has three great truths…

1. We are born again because of what Christ has done. He died for our sin and He was raised back to life. He took our punishment to give us eternal life.

2. We now live with a great hope and expectation of Jesus coming back for us and taking us to be with Him for eternity. He said He is preparing a place for us in His Father’s house.

3. We have a priceless inheritance kept for us in heaven. We get to live forever with Christ and receive our rewards for what we have done in this life. Our eternal home will be with no pain, suffering, war or death.
