The List


“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are writ- ten in the Lamb’s book of life.” Revelation 21:27 (KJV)

Recently I was given the opportunity to go to an event where only the invited could come. Upon my arrival to the event, I was asked to state my name so that the person in charge of the list could make sure my name was listed. If my name had not been written down on that list, they would have refused my entry and turned me away. But because I had been invited and because my name was on the list, I was allowed to proceed on through to go to the event.

I thought about how this list is like the Book of Life. The Bible tells us in Revelation that only those names who are written in the Book of Life are allowed to enter into Heaven. If your name is not in the Lamb’s Book of Life, you will not be given access to experience the joys and grandeur of heaven. All have been invited through the Lord Jesus Christ and his death on the cross for our sins. All we need to do is to accept his invitation and to RSVP so that our name makes the list.

Is your name on the list?
