“To secure it, to realize it as our own, to enjoy its wealth, we must be ready to make any sacrifice. We do not possess it if we only believe that it exists, or that it is of great value. We do not possess it if we only discern it – see at times visions of its beauty and richness, of all that it might bring into our life. We do not possess it even if in moments of high emotion we seem to feel and know its wealth and power. Possession is secured only by sacrifice – sacrifice which is willing to cover the whole range of life.”
1 Peter 1:4 says, “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.”
