TEXT: LUKE 10:17-20
KEY VERSE: “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven” (Luke10:20)
The greatest benefit of God to you in this life is that your name is written in the Book of life. If you could not make any investment for yourself or your children but you are able to introduce your household to God, it is a great privilege. Is your name written in the book with the God of the universe? What a great privilege, but if the book is read and your name is not found what a woe. It was better you were not created at all. Eat all the good food well now, drive that expensive car and worship money now because if your name is not in the register of God, you are doomed forever. The danger of one’s name not being written in the book of life is that as long as God lives, you will also continue to live but in eternal torture in hell. There are others whose names were formerly in the book of life but were blotted because of sin and compromise. And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book. (Exodus 32: 31 – 33).
Your name will continue to remain in the book of life if you choose to remain in Holiness and righteousness. Do not be deceived with “eternal security” once saved ever saved. You must overcome temptation for your name to continue to remain in the book of life. Lazarus overcome trails and temptation of this world, see him now, he is in heaven and live there forever. Return you backslider, Israel, return you prodigal son, God wants to show you mercy. God has been reaching out to you since your name was removed, only acknowledge your sins, repent and forsake them. The Lord will open the door of mercy unto you.
Thought of the day: Rejoice not that the devils are subject to you, but that your name is in heaven.
Song of the day: Remember me Oh Lord, remember me in Your kingdom.
Bible reading for the day: Ezra 1-2; John 19:23-42
