Written in Heaven

One of my favorite passages is found in Luke 10.
Jesus has sent out the 70 to teach the Word.
When the 70 return in verse 17, they are excited,
they come with great joy.  They say “even the demons
are subject to us in Your Name.”  And Jesus says to them,
“I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.  Behold, I
give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by
any means hurt you.”
But verse 20 is the amazing, encouraging verse to me,
“Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are
subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are
written in heaven.”
What a thought!!!  It seems so often we wish we could do
miracles and nothing would be greater, but Jesus Himself
says, having our name written in heaven is more cause
for rejoicing.
The Book of Life, the Lamb’s Book of Life.  Will our names
be written in that book?  Think about it.

As always love to hear your comments.
