It will flow from me to you. It is not earned because it is a gift. My riches are bequeathed to you because I love you. Our relationship demands this from me.
It will flow from you to your child. It cannot be earned. You will gift it in love because you love your child. Your relationship will demand it.
It flows from Him to us. His wealth. His heaven is bequeathed to us because He loves us. Our relationship through His salvation allows it.
Our heavenly Father determines who receives this eternal inheritance. He determines it by relationship, by a right relationship with Him made possible by His Son.
We, who were once alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, are now reconciled in Christ’s body by His death, in order that we may be presented holy, blameless, and above reproach. In Christ, we receive our inheritance.
Our inheritance can never perish, spoil, or fade and is being kept for us in heaven. Our inheritance is made possible because of the worth imputed upon us by Christ.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
