“God has reserved for his children the priceless gift of eternal life; it is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay?” (1 Peter 1:4 TLB).
No matter what’s going on in your life, your eternity with God will never be cancelled. Peter says it’s reserved and “kept beyond the reach of change and decay.”
You may lose many things in this life, but you won’t lose your eternity with God. The final chapter of this universe has been written. If you’ve committed your life to Christ, you’ll be with Him for eternity.
Every problem you’ve endured will be worth it at that time because of what is to come. Peter urges us to, “Be truly glad! There is wonderful joy ahead, even though the going is rough for a while down here” (1 Peter 1:6 TLB). Remind yourself of this, no matter the difficulties you face. There is great joy ahead.
Father, thank you for the priceless gift of eternal life beyond the reach of change or decay.
