Scripture Lesson: Revelation 3:5
On this date in 1906 in an effort to prevent hitters from rubbing out the chalk lines in the batter’s box, National League umpire Hank O’Day suggests white rubber strips to be used to mark the box. This suggestion never gains support and today we still use the same system of marking the box.
In the letter to the Church at Sardis John writes that once a name has been written in the book of life that name will never be blotted out or erased. Once we have made a decision to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we will never have to doubt our salvation. Our name will always appear in the book of life and Jesus will acknowledge us as His own. What a great reminder of the certainty of salvation!
1. Have you made the decision to accept Christ as your Savior?
2. What does it mean to you to have your name in the book of life?
3. Why is it important to witness and share Christ with those who have not made the decision to follow Jesus?
God desires that no one be left out of the book of life. May we live lives each day that reflect the love of God and may others see Jesus in the way we live.
