Revelation 21:27 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Revelation 21:27

Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. 


I was looking at my business card yesterday (yes, I’m official now – LOL!) and I was thinking about all the places my name has been written. Some good, some bad, some by choice, and some by choices I have made. Depending on who wrote it and for what reason invokes different emotions in me. A birthday card from my mother makes me feel happy and loved. A warrant for my arrest makes me feel worried, ashamed, and defeated.


I never realized the power in where my name was written until Jesus wrote my name in His book! Now my name appears in many places but none as important as the Lamb’s Book of Life!! Because it is written in Heaven, it doesn’t matter where it appears on Earth!! Heaven trumps Earth every time!!!


Brothers and sisters we may have the same name, but we are new creations in Christ!!! There are no titles, bank accounts, deeds, or accomplishments mentioned in this book. Just your name, and it’s either there or it isn’t. I encourage you today: if your name is not in that book, hit your knees and ask Jesus to write it down!! If it is already there, then let’s act like it!!!


Be encouraged and be encouraging!!! I love you all, God bless, and glory to God!!!!
