Judging A Book

You need not burrow far into your address book to find a name that no longer needs contact info. Today’s calls seem to be from telemarketers or news of a death.

A day’s coming when people will be unable to reach you, a day when “Rest in peace” will be an understatement, whether the departed is on streets of gold or burning coal.

Encouraged to write a book, I've been mentioned in a few, but the one I really want to be in is the Bible’s book of life. It embodies the best news ever: Jesus willingly took your place on the cross to become the only sacrifice that could permanently cancel all of your sins.

QUESTION: How does God’s pardon get into your account?

ANSWER: Everyone who believes in Jesus will be saved.”*

FROM WHAT? “If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” **

Is your name in this book?

* John 3:15
** Revelation 20:15
