Unfading inheritance…

1Pe 1:4 “to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you

Peter is going to great lengths to give us a clear word picture of what is in store in the future for the one who trusts the Lord Jesus Christ. Living in this world, we are accustomed to things that fade. In our world nothing retains its original beauty and newness. In our world everything is susceptible to some sort of decay. In our world everything living dies.

Imagine a world where the flowers that bloom will as rich in color and fragrance forever. Imagine a world were nothing dies. Imagine a world where nothing grows old…where decay is nonexistent. That is the world waiting for the one who is willing to relinquish control of something that they in reality have no control over in the first place…our lives. Consider…can you absolutely guarantee that you will live any certain amount of time? If not, then you are not in control of your life! If you are not in control…then WHO is?
