“The new you is part of your inheritance.”—Dan Schaeffer, in his book “A Better Country, p. 121. What an enlightening statement! I know that I will be perfected in the next life, but I never made the connection that it’s part and parcel of my inheritance. Imagine for a moment if you entered into heaven without losing the sin nature. Heaven would not be heaven. Our inheritance is assured. The Holy Spirit is the down payment (2 Cor. 1:22). Our environment will be changed; there will be a new heaven and a new earth. We will no longer be subject to sickness and death. We will be in the presence of our creator and savior—forever. We will have transparent and loving relations with countless neighbors and friends—forever. And I will be perfect in every respect—forever. My relations with others and with God Himself will be without spot or blemish. Yes, I will be part of my inheritance! My inheritance includes me.
