A WONDERFUL INHERITANCE (PART IV)

”All honour to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is his boundless mercy that has given us the privilege of being born again, so that we are now members of God’s own family. Now we live in the hope of eternal life because Christ rose again from the dead. And God has reserved for his children the priceless gift of eternal life; it is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. And God, in his mighty power, will make sure that you get there safely to receive it, because you are trusting him. It will be yours in that coming last day for all to see”. (1 Peter 1:3 – 5 TLB)

”The Lord himself is my food and drink, my highest joy! He guards all that is mine. He sees that I am given pleasant brooks and meadows as my share . What a wonderful inheritance!” (Psalm 16: 5-6 TLB).
