There is something quite exciting about seeing your name on a list that gives you special access. It’s a privilege to see and experience things you otherwise wouldn’t.

Only those whose names are in the Lamb’s book of life will be given access to spend eternity with the Lord Jesus. It’s so exciting to know that our name can be written in that most amazing book. But it is also sobering to know that people we know, love, and care about may not have their names in that book. The implications are staggering; however, we have an incredible opportunity to make a difference.

We can share the love of Jesus with others so they, too, can know Jesus personally and have their names written in heaven. God gives us the ability and the knowledge to share with others. Maybe you feel that you don’t know how, yet it is simply sharing the story of what God has done in your life. He has forgiven you of your sins and you have received Him as your Savior and Lord. This is what He desires for all of us.

How would it feel to partner with God to see someone’s name added to that book?

Lord, You have given us the gift of salvation. I praise You for this. Thank You for loving me so much. I pray that You would give me courage to share with people in my life whose names may not be in that book. May I be forever aware that I have the greatest life-giving message to offer the people You have placed in my life. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Take Action

Pray that God will lay on your heart one person whose name you would like to see written in the Lamb’s book of life. Then ask God to begin to show you opportunities to share your faith with that person. Seek God for the courage, know-how and boldness to share so they may know Him in a personal way.
