"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to 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." 1 Pet 1:3-5 NKJV
I love these verses!
To think that in a moment of faith our far away Creator became our Father. Who knew that God had so much mercy? To be taken out from under dark power and placed in a kingdom of light with Christ as our brother where we have an inheritance is more than my little mind can handle most days.
Perhaps our time has been misspent like the prodigal. Just go home. Your Father will be waiting there. Our inheritance is many things but the most precious of these is the embrace of our eternal Father who is always happy to see us.
