These twelve verses are jam packed full of theology – all that is most necessary for us to know about Jesus, about what God is doing through Jesus in this world. Such knowledge is a sure foundation for life in a perilous world. What heartens you most here?
* Dear God, Your word is truth. Please write it deep in our hearts today.
“… To an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you,”
We believe Jesus was raised from the dead.
We believe His resurrection caused us to be born again.
We believe we are born again to a living hope.
We believe that this living hope is wrapped up in an inheritance like no other. This hope/inheritance cannot perish, it cannot be defiled and it will not fade.
We believe our hope/inheritance is kept in heaven for us.
How deep and wide these truths are, how important they are for our daily walk, how good a God we have to give us an inheritance such as this!
* Almighty God,
We bring You thanks Lord, thank You – For all that You have done for us, all that You are doing, and the great hope we have in our inheritance, stored securely in heaven.
Please mark us as Your people in truth, who go about Your will, bearing Your Name well, each day.
