Rightly Related Rejoicing

God has given us great power to tread over the enemy. He has given us spiritual gifts and the Holy Spirit. God opens doors that allow us opportunities to serve His people. Nonetheless, Jesus says we should not celebrate this power we have, nor rejoice over the success.

In Luke 10, Jesus notes that successful service should not be a reason for rejoicing, but instead, He said we should rejoice that are names are written in heaven. It is wonderful that we have the power to tread over the enemy. It is fantastic that we have been given spiritual gifts. But none of this means anything compared to our eternal life.

Today rejoice that your name is written in heaven. Rejoice that Jesus has made the way for you to enter through His gates. Rejoice that you are saved by the grace of God. Rejoice that you can spend eternity with the One Who is love. Rejoice that He is the Way.

“But don’t rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven.” – Luke 10:20 [NLT]
