Titus 3:5a, 7 - He saved us…so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
A sharply dressed man carrying a briefcase knocks on your door. He tells you that you are the sole heir of a wealthy estate. After your initial shock, do you think you could even contain your excitement?
Being an heir of unexpected wealth would feel like winning the lottery. So what does it feel like to be an heir of the hope of eternal life? In Christ, that is what we are.
God has named you an heir of hope. And now you can leave that same hope to the next generation. When people write their wills, they want to leave to their children their most precious belongings. The most precious treasure we have is the hope of eternal life. With the help of the Holy Spirit, let us make a new generation of heirs, having the hope of eternal life.
