The Book of Life - Matt Postiff

If there is someone who genuinely wants to get saved, and is afraid they are not listed in the Book of Life, quickly disabuse them of that thinking by telling them that God commands us to repent and believe the gospel. If you do that, you are saved, and thus prove that you were listed in the book. From the human perspective, since we do not and cannot know who is "in" and who is "out" in advance, we must not worry about who is in the book, and instead focus on obeying God, and everything will be fine. For us who want to share the life-giving message with others, our job is not to figure out if someone is elect. Our job is to proclaim the gospel. Never are we told to have someone wait and let them figure out if they are in the Book or not. They know by learning and properly responding to the gospel of Christ. For us who want to receive the life-giving message of Jesus, we do not look to the Book of Life. We look to the Lamb of God who saves. We repent and believe in Jesus Christ. He died to cleanse us from our sins and give us a new life.

Our Scripture reading was found in Isaiah 48:1-22.
