1 Peter 1:4 (NIV)

…and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you…

Gods work in you is not just for today or just for this life but rather to prepare you for your inheritance – one day the Lord will call us “home” – to be where our Father is and where our whole family enter into the full blessing of Gods amazing love and preparation! For Peters readers this was the comfort and hope that was to keep them going – look on, there’s a great day coming!

We shall be like Him, the Son of God most holy,
We shall be like Him, sweet promise of His grace!
Christian, press forward! some bright, some glad tomorrow
We shall be like Him, for we shall see His face.
