Your Name in a Book!

“And anyone not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”

Revelation 20:15

There was a marketing genius who came up with the idea of putting people's names in a book and then selling them a copy.  I think the name was "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities." 

Almost 40 years ago I bought a copy because it had my name in it.  It was a great idea because the book was big and there were thousands of names and of course probably thousands of books sold.

The Book of Life is a book of names.  Only the Lord Himself knows how many names are in the Book of Life.  If your name is in the Book of Life then you will go to Heaven and if it is not written there you will be thrown into the lake of fire.

Frankly, it is nice to see your own name written in a book.  But the Book of Life is not available at your local Barnes and Nobles.  There are no libraries with copies of the Book of Life.

Jesus said that He was the way, the truth and the LIFE.  The only way to know that you are in the Book of Life is to be in Jesus Christ.  If you are in Christ then you are in the Book.
