INCORRUPTIBLE ,UNDEFILED, THAT DOES NOT FADE AWAY

May 15, 2014

As I was reading 1 Peter this morning, these words; incorruptible, undefiled, and does not fade away, jumped out at me and really nourished my soul.

So many things in this life are corruptible….people, governments, teachings, systems….so many things are subject to corruption. So much today is defiled and so many good principles are fading away. It gave me hope and a reminder that there is something out there waiting for you and I that is NOT subject to corruption and the like. I love the word “reserved” for us used in this scripture. Here are Peter’s words…

1 Peter 1:3b-5 “…His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,  who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

So if you are a child of God and things fall apart around you…take heart…there is reserved for you in heaven an inheritance that is untouchable and will never fade away! Rejoice!
