LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE! – Luke 12:18-19 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Luke 12:18-19 – Devotional

Luke 12:18-19

So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, ‘Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.'”

Since I have astigmatism that can only be corrected with glasses, I have had to wear them most of my life (a long, long time). Over the years I have heard people talk about being near sighted and even once worked for a near-sighted Probate Court Judge (his vision was great while reading or seeing anything close up).

He was telling a group of us about being fitted for glasses when he was in his 20’s–it was almost a shock to his senses that he could actually read house numbers from the street! He had no idea that this was what people with normal eyesight were able to see.

Isn’t it tragic that most people on the face of the earth are spiritually near sighted? They see only those things that are part of the here and now, but fail to perceive that the hear and now is but a vapor compared to the vast reality of eternity.

Satan has blinded the eyes of the unregenerate so that they refuse to consider that eternity is merely a heartbeat away. The things of this life will quickly be gone and only those who have received Jesus Christ by personal invitation will enter into the home he has prepared for those who’s names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Are you near sighted or far sighted?

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing!
