1 Peter 1:3-4 (NET) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, that is, into an inheritance imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. It is reserved in heaven for you

When Stanley accepted the Lord Jesus Christ, he was very diligent to learn the ways of the kingdom and to grow in the knowledge of God.

There were many sacrifices he made for the sake of Christ and the gospel. He had to let go of certain privileges from his family because he was determined to be a disciple of Christ.

After being a faithful disciple of Christ for decades, he had raised many other disciples and was now walking in great favor and influence. He was also a recipient of great honor because he had raised many young men who themselves had grown to become notable individuals in society.

Seeing the wealth and honor Stanly enjoyed in the latter days of his life, Kemi said this to his hearing: "Dady has been faithful to God and is now seeing his inheritance. He labored so much in God's vineyard and he now walks in his reward.

Before Kemi finished saying this, Stanley was swift to stop her and correct her.

"all that you see now is not my inheritance, it's just a token of the mercy of God. As for my inheritance, it has been stored up in heaven. All these fleeting perishable things you see cannot even begin to be classified among the most minor manifestations of the coming kingdom of Christ. That is where my hope is locked on. That is where my inheritance can be revealed.

As a child of God, it is important you understand that you have an inheritance with God. This understanding will keep you in the straight and narrow way. We have been called to inherit the Kingdom of God. Everything that God owns will be ours one day (see Rev 21:7, Rom 8:17) if we remain in Christ until he returns or calls us home.

Go into today remembering that you have been chosen to be an heir of God. Your walk with God is the most important thing in your life. Be determined to invest in it.

Prayer: Heavenly father, please help me never to forget that I have an unperishable inheritance in you. Help me to walk worthy of my calling and be fruitful in every good work. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
