Today's Promise : A Daily Devotional
July 20, 2013
In the Book of Life
"Everyone who conquers will be clothed in white, and I will not erase his name from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and His angels that he is Mine" (Revelation 3:5).
Perhaps you have rejoiced - as I have - at the reminder that our names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life, God's heavenly record of the redeemed.
Here are two more promises to the conqueror, the overcomer, the victorious Christian - one having to do with future reign, the other with our security in Him.
Not only to the believers in Sardis who should be victorious, but also to those in every age and every land, lies the hope - indeed the promise - of appearing with Christ in white robes expressing holiness and joy in that future day when He shall rule and reign on this earth.
If you are a believer in Christ, your name is in the that book which contains the names of those who are to live with Him throughout eternity. Not to have our names erased, of course, means that the names will be found there on the great day of final account, and forever and ever.
What better way could we use our time today - and tomorrow - and the next day - than to add names to the Book of Life, by faithfully witnessing to others about the good news of the gospel? Our privilege and responsibility is to share; God's Holy Spirit does the work of convicting and saving.
Bible Reading: Revelation 3:1-6
TODAY'S ACTION POINT: "Dear Lord, help me to add names to Your Book of Life by sharing my faith in You at every possible opportunity."
