What does reserved and waiting mean to you? To me, it has a double meaning. First, When I prayed the sinner’s prayer, I admitted to God that I was a sinner and I asked Him to forgive me and be my personal Lord and Savior. I believe that He died on the cross for my sins and rose again three days later. One day I will leave this earthly home and live with Him in heaven. At that point in my life, I became reserved by God. Now I am building and growing my relationship with Him, waiting to go to heaven.
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and recieve you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:1-3 (NKJV)
Second, As I grow in my relationship I try to live my life as He directs me. By living my life in His ways, I am rewarded here on earth plus I have rewards and treasures in heaven reserved and waiting.
“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, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” 1Peter 1:3-5 (NKJV)
