Book of Life

“Choose life then that you and your descendants may live...” 
Deuteronomy 30:19

There are movies about finding the mysterious “Book of Life” so the hero can have riches and power, and sometimes bring the dead to live again. What we usually take for granted is we can all have this Book of Life. If we read it every day, we will have true riches that will not rot, need not be put in the central bank to be protected, and will not lose its value when we leave earth. We will also have power (Acts 1:8) as Jesus promised, when the Holy Spirit dwells in us and enlivens our spirit. And when we die, we can have life everlasting. 

Do we read the instructions in this amazing Book of Life so we can have everything the author promises? It says in Proverbs 4:20-23 that we have to pay attention to His Words, keep it in our hearts, our ears, in front of our eyes. It’s not enough to have the Book on a shelf, and open it when we need help or some inspiration. The power God’s Word promises is very real and can protect us from the “fiery darts of the enemy” (Ephesians 6:16). Our enemy is real but he wants us to think he’s just a figment of our imagination. If we don’t believe in him, we will not fight him and we will not protect ourselves against him. We will not go to war against the garbage he throws at us daily. Fear, anxiety, insecurity, these are all part of his arsenal. 

Let’s choose to open our Book of Life and study it so we can have all that God wants to give us!
