Thankful God knows our name!

Scripture reading for April 14th:  2nd Kings 25, 1st Chronicles 1-4

Key Scriptures:  1st Chronicles 1:1-4  “Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalalel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah.  The sons of Noah; Shem, Ham and Japheth.”

Chronicles 1:1-4 opens with a list of names beginning with Adam and going through the sons of Noah, which began the history of the world after the flood. God uses each person’s unique name and records them in His books!  Some are written down here in the Bible and referred to in other passages according to their stories.  Others are written in the Book of Life as they put their faith in God’s Son, Jesus Christ!  He knows each name and each name has a story known by God!

Thankful that God knows our name:  Our name may or may not be recorded in the Bible, God’s holy book.  But we can be sure that He records all those who are His children in the Book of Life!  “And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened.  Another book was opened, which is the book of life.  . . .If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”  (Revelation 20:12, 15)
