FATHER’S Love Plan Part 7

Peter wrote by THE SPIRIT in his first epistle chapter 1:

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 

4to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you

5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Even though our sinful and lawless past deserves no inheritance, FATHER has reserved an inheritance for you and me.  HIS Love is greater than the summation of all our past failures and swallows up death on our behalf.  What is left?  The fullness of life, Love, peace, and joy as an inheritance because of HIS infinite and unconditional Love.  Peter continued:

22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, 

23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 

24 because

​“All flesh is as grass,

​​And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.

​​The grass withers,

​​And its flower falls away,

25 ​​But the word of the LORD endures forever.”

​Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

The incorruptible seed has been planted in us and brings forth purification of our souls.  HIS Love has a purifying effect as we obey the Truth through The Holy Spirit. It is a wonder that defies human understanding and is contrary to man’s logic and reasoning.

HIS Seed overtakes our sinful past and HIS incorruption is greater than our corruption in all aspects.  This is why we must not allow the past to influence today’s decisions or thinking.  We truly are HIS new creation.  What a beautiful Love plan which restores us to Our Heavenly Father!

We can see at the center of HIS Divine Intent is HIS Love plan.  There is no mention of the necessity of various acts by us which are required for us to enter into this state of incorruption except to obey HIS Truth. Who would not want to accept this plan?

There is not a long list of performance requirements and tests to enter into HIS Love plan.  The plan is simple and straightforward so that all men and women can walk according to HIS plan.  HE did not discriminate against anyone but included all of us no matter what our human capacity.

Love always wins.  There is nothing insurmountable keeping us from this incorruption Peter has pointed out.  When Jesus was resurrected from the dead, He sealed the Love plan’s success so that there is no weakness of failure attributable to FATHER’S Plan.  HIS plan has been revealed so let us fully embrace it and focus our attention of the greatest aspect of FATHER’S Divine Intent- Love.
