We Have An Inheritance


When faced with a chronic illness we realize our normal has changed. We have the new normal of the daily medicines, therapy, and sometimes chemo. A once envisioned future evaporates. We wonder what the tomorrow holds. The good news is that as Believers in Christ Jesus, we do have an inheritance. Cancer, heart disease, a stroke, high blood pressure, glaucoma, COPD or any disease/illness cannot take that future bequest away from you.

Today’s Bible Verse:

1 Peter 1:3-4 (KJV), “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,”

What the Verses Mean:

As Christians, we have an inheritance through Jesus Christ.

Praying Using the Verses:

  1. We bless the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. We thank our Heavenly Father for His abundant mercies that through the resurrection of Jesus Christ we have a Living Hope, even as we battle a chronic illness like Miss Benita’s cancer.
  3. We praise You for the inheritance we have in Jesus Christ. The inheritance is incorruptible, undefiled and does not fade away. It does not disappear when we get a chronic illness.
