His great mercy has caused us to be born again ... to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. -1Peter 1:3-4 NASB
Our inheritance, like our born again hearts, are imperishable and undefiled. Peter speaks of this salvific inheritance as one that will be revealed in the last time. It so reminds me of what Paul wrote to the Corinthians:
“Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard,I so look forward to that day when our salvation will come into full bloom. A time when the glory of God and the fullness of his love will be revealed to us in ways that we cannot imagine. Until that day comes, at either his coming or our going, it is comforting to know that we are, through faith, protected by his power and have a place reserved in heaven.
And which have not entered the heart of man,
All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Maranatha. Come Lord Jesus.
