All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. 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. And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.
—1 Peter 1:3 (NLT)
When I was eight years old, I didn't know what born-again meant. I just knew that as I sat with Miss Cliffie Johnston in church that morning, I heard Brother Ward ask if there was anyone who wanted to ask Jesus into their heart. And I suddenly, I knew that I did. So I asked, and my whole life has been a journey to understand who I am in Jesus. I’m new each day of my life. There is no end to the mercy of His grace.
I look back on life now, remembering the moments that shaped my faith. He filled me with His Spirit and set my life on a path I've never regretted. He is the love of my life. If this were to be the last thing I ever wrote, I pray that it brings glory to Him.
All praise to God, my father, because of Jesus Christ, my Savior. It is by His great mercy that I have been born again. Now I live with great hope and expectation. I have a priceless inheritance that is kept in heaven for me. It is pure and clean beyond the reach of this world's pandemic. God protects me by His power until He is ready to be revealed on the last day.
If you want to have a priceless inheritance, please ask Jesus Christ into your heart.
