1Pe 1:4 “to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in for you“
The inheritance belongs to the rightful heirs. To qualify for the inheritance one must be a child of God. If you are not a child then you are not an heir and therefore not eligible for any inheritance.
Inheritance is not earned. It is a gift from the one who grants something of value. To get an inheritance one’s name must be written into the will. Christians…those who’s names are written in Jesus’ will…the Book of Life…will be eligible for their inheritance. It is the final [?] proof to be unfolded of God’s love for us.
Inheritance can only be given after the death of the testator. In this case the testator is the Son of God, Jesus Christ. The testator must put together the inheritance. It is the testator’s work that makes the inheritance possible. It is the testator’s will to provide for his children that makes the inheritance available. It is the testator’s love for his offspring that impells him to plan and put aside something valuable to leave his children when he is gone.
The question on my mind is just what is this inheritance that God promises?
