Daily Devotional
September 4
 
And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.
Philippians 4:3
 
After ministering in various areas, the disciples returned to Jesus excited about what they had seen. ‘Lord,’ they said, ‘even the demons are subject unto us as we share in Your name. It’s amazing what’s happening!’

But what did Jesus say?

He said, ‘Don’t rejoice in what you’ve seen. Rather, rejoice that your names are written in the Book of Life,’ (Luke 10:20).

We should be full of ecstasy and elated continually not because we cast out a demon or saw a healing or were used in ministry. We should be amazed constantly over one thing primarily: the fact that we’re saved.

Hell is real, gang. We don’t understand it. It’s still sort of fuzzy to us. But Jesus knew the reality of hell, even as He knew the reality of Heaven.

That is why He said to His disciples, ‘Here’s what you should be excited about: because your name is written in the Book of Life, you’re not going to hell. You’re going to Heaven where you will live with Me forever.’

The knowledge that we’re headed for Heaven should keep a smile on our faces every day of our lives. Heaven alone should keep praise flowing from our lips perpetually.

‘I don’t feel good,’ we groan.
Who cares? We’re not going to hell!

‘I’m not appreciated at work,’ we cry.
Who cares? We’re going to live eternally.

‘I won the lottery!’ we shout.
So what? That’s nothing compared to Heaven!’
