Will You Make the Cut?

Description

Those who make the cut will spend eternity on God’s team and have their names written in the Book of Life. And those who don’t will spend eternity separated from God.

"...if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." - Revelation 20:15

Have you ever wanted to play on a sports team, or wanted a part in the school play, or maybe wanted to make the Dean’s list?

Well, I have and I remember it like it was yesterday. I was walking to the coach’s office to read who made the cut for the basketball team. If your name wasn’t on the door, you hadn’t made the cut.

I was stunned! Where was my name? I had played basketball all my life. I was devastated to find my name was left off the list.

God’s Word in Revelation 20 tells us that when Jesus returns, all mankind will be divided into two lists: Those who make the cut will spend eternity on God’s team and have their names written in the Book of Life. All who don’t will spend eternity separated from God. Their names will be listed in the book of deeds and they’ll be devastated.

What’s the difference?

The Book of Life contains the names of people with repentant faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. Those in the book of deeds will be people trying to make the cut by being good. None of us are good enough for heaven. We would have to be perfect. But there is only One who is perfect. His name is Jesus and He is our only hope of making the cut.

Which book will you be in? Don’t leave it to chance.
