He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
Revelations 21:7, niv
The apostle Peter confirms that the inheritance being laid up for the Father’s children “can never perish, spoil or fade”—it is “kept in heaven for you” (1 Pet. 1:4, niv). Although our inheritance is safely stored in heaven, there is a condition we have to meet before we can claim it: “He who overcomes will inherit all this.”
What do you have to overcome in order to claim My Father’s House as your own? You have to overcome . . .
- your pride that refuses to acknowledge you are a sinner who needs a Savior.
- your religiosity that substitutes . . . rituals for repentance, traditions for truth, and orthodoxy for obedience.
- your unbelief that Jesus Christ is God’s Son, the sinner’s Savior.
Overcomers place their faith in Jesus alone for salvation . . . and inherit heaven!
