An inheritance is what you’re given because you belong to a family. Usually it’s given to you at someone’s death.
Peter gives us five declarations that describe our inheritance in heaven:
Reserved: You need a reservation to get into heaven, and you can only make that reservation through Jesus. Once you put in your reservation, it can never be canceled.
Pure: Your inheritance isn’t fake. It’s the real deal.
Undefiled: Your inheritance can’t be corrupted. You can’t lose it—ever.
Beyond the reach of change and decay: Your inheritance won’t wither, die, or lose its value.
Priceless: The value of your inheritance can’t be measured.
In fact, God has already written the final chapter of your life. If you’re a believer, you’ve got a reservation in heaven! And you cannot lose your salvation. You can trust in that. You can believe in that. You can place your hope in that.
