In the Book of Life

  The Bible teaches that the Christian has his name enrolled in heaven. The Lord sent seventy disciples on a mission. They returned and made their report, rejoicing over their power over demons. Luke 10: 20, Jesus said, "Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rejoice rather because your names are written in heaven."

  John wrote, Revelation 20: 15, "And if any was not found written in the book of life, he was cast in the lake of fire." Paul said the Philippians brethren had their names "in the book of life."

  God does not enroll those who do not confess and obey His Son. God will not keep on His roll those who are unfaithful to His Son (Rev. 22:19). As Moses said, "Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book."

  There is genuine cause to rejoice when our names are written there on the page bright and fair.
