Red Letter Wisdom-Reason To Rejoice

September 23rd, 2019

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Wisdom from the Red Letters is found in Luke 10:20.

Jesus said to His followers, “Do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

He said this to 72 people who had seen God do amazing things in their ministry. Demons submitted to them in Jesus’ name. And they came back to Jesus with hearts full of joy at what God had done through them.

But Jesus reminded them that there was a reason to rejoice greater than seeing the demons submit to them. That was having the assurance that their names were written in heaven. That is a miracle worth celebrating-the opportunity of being a new creation in Christ, and belonging to Him forever.

The words of Jesus inspire us to enjoy our relationship with God each and every day in the Year of Redemption.
