The Light Daily Devotional – The Book of Life
Focus: The Book of Life
WORD FOR TODAY
The book of life is the book that contains the name of those who truly lived for God in their lifetime. As you strive to be in various records in life your name must not be missing in the book of life!
“He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels.” Rev 3:5 NIV
The record of your existence for God in the land of the living is written in the book of life. This book is the book of His people; who overcame the world and lived a life characterized by holiness and righteousness of God.
As you strive to carve a name of honour in various books of life, be mindful of the fact that in this life all achievements will eventually be surpassed. Records will be broken, reputations will fade and tributes will be forgotten. Living to create an earthly legacy is a short-sighted goal.
Ultimately, what matters as your fleeting years go by is what God says about you in His book. Live your life to please God alone and you will not be disappointed in His presence on the last day.
+ Is your name in the book of life?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to live my entire life to impress you in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: You will only make an eternal legacy if your name is in the book of life!
Have a Wonderful Week Ahead!
