Every Face a Name


All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine.
Revelation 3:5 NLT

I have been listening my way through the Bible and this morning spent 20 minutes hearing a list of hundreds of names at the end of Nehemiah. While at first blush long genealogies seem super boring, God showed me that they are not boring to Him. He reminded me that every time He writes down a name He sees that person’s face and every face is another life paid for at the cross. To Him those long pages of names are precious to Him. In fact Jesus tells us that the angels break into rejoicing every time one more is written down. But at the end of our lives it will not matter what things others write or if they remember our face. What will count is if our name is written in God’s Book and if our face will be seen at His throne! Is your name written down?
