An inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, that fades not away, reserved in heaven for you. The children of God are heirs to a glorious inheritance. It is not an earthly inheritance, but a heavenly. It is not given to them in full possession in this world, but is reserved for them in heaven. They could not receive it here – they have a pilgrimage to make to get to it. But while the inheritance is securely kept for them in heaven, they have the promise of guardianship on the way. They are kept by the power of God through faith. All our life in this world is intended to prepare us for receiving our inheritance. If we have troubles, we need not be afraid – we may rejoice in them all. If we have dangers, we need not be dismayed – we have the promise of protection. Some day we shall see Christ, whom now we love but cannot see. Heaven is sure for all who are faithful in this world. If we do God’s will and do not lose faith, we shall be kept in safety through this world and brought at last home to our inheritance.
