It’s an amazing and most unusual deal. The builder is doing everything – choosing the place, designing and building the home, outfitting every detail with our personal needs and desires in mind, selecting and creating the landscaping that promises to be more beautiful than I can even imagine, and even assuring us a setting with compatible neighbors. If that wasn’t enough, He is PAYING FOR EVERYTHING!!!
Sound fantastic or fictitious? Wondering if I got an email from a Nigerian prince?
No worries – it’s not that – Our builder has a worldwide reputation for building from scratch, and personalized renovation stories that get me more excited than if I won a home makeover from the Property Brothers or Chip and Joanna Gaines!
Honest— it’s better than either of those choices.
It’s real. I got an inheritance!
1Pet. 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,
Eph. 1:13-14 In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation — having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance…
Eph. 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
Eph. 1:19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
The more I examine the facts about Heaven, and the more excited I get. Just like home here, it’s not as much what it looks like but WHO is there that makes my spirits soar.
