Do you have the Holy Spirit’s assurance that your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life? What about family and friends?
2 Corinthians 5:10, “For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.”
Revelation 14:7, “And he said with a loud voice, “’Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgement has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.’”
Revelation 11:18, “The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people who revere your name, both great and small— and for destroying those who destroy the earth.”
Luke 13:23-28, “And someone said to him, “Lord, will those who are saved be few?” And he said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able… In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but you yourselves cast out.”
2 Thessalonians 1:9-10, “They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might when He comes on that day to be glorified in his saints and to be marvelled at by all who have believed..”
John 5:21-23, “For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will. For the Father judges no one, but has given all judgement to the Son, that all may honour the Son, just as they honour the Father. Whoever does not honour the Son does not honour the Father who sent him.”

Lord, we bow in earnest petition today for those we know and love whose names may not yet be written in Your Book of Life. We pray with the same earnestness, Jesus for the unreached people in our local area and beyond.
