God Has Already Written the Final Chapter of Your Life
By Rick Warren
“Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay” (1 Peter 1:3-4 NLT).
No matter what happens for the rest of your life, if you have a relationship with Jesus, God guarantees your future. You will never be able to lose your salvation.
The Bible says, “Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay” (1 Peter 1:3-4 NLT).
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.
