Heirlooms of Hope I.
Updated: Mar 16
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance- an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. 1 Peter 3-4 (NLT)
Nitric Acid is often used to test the quality and percentage of silver; the only problem is that the silver partially dissolves in the process, damaging your antique silver piece! I found out this information when I was desperately wanting to know if an item I had purchased was actual silver.
On my quest, I also learned that the only element able to withstand the presence of Nitric Acid without chemically reacting is pure gold. In the same way, the Lord is storing up an inheritance in heaven for those who know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. The presence of Christ in our lives is of far greater value than that of pure gold. The Holy Spirit in us cannot be deterred by life’s harsh elements. Praise God for His goodness! He is faithful. He is faithful. He is faithful.
