Revelation 20:11‭-‬15 NIVUK

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

This is part of the Good News of Christmas! When the angels declared peace to all humanity, part of the peace they were referring to come from the knowledge that if you place your faith in Jesus, the one placed in the manger, then you’re name is recorded in the book, not because of your deeds but his.

Thank you Father that through faith in Jesus my name is in the book! Help me by the Spirit to live a life worthy of my entry.
