Eternally His

One-minute read.

The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.

Revelation 3:5

God doesn’t erase our names once we begin a relationship with Jesus. The purity of Christ’s connection to us comes with a permanent guarantee. In ancient cities, they recorded the names of people in their registry, but once someone died, they marked out the name. When Jesus says, “I will never blot his name out of the Book of Life,” He affirms our unbreakable connection with the Lord and that death won’t separate us from Him.

White clothing comes to us for overcoming the stains of the world. Remaining faithful to Christ and living by His commands gives us a new wardrobe. Instead of succumbing to worldly ways,  we cloak ourselves in the Savior as we strive to become more like Him.  And when we enter heaven, we’ll receive similar clothing to Him.

Having a genuine relationship with Jesus gives us heavenly citizenship that no one can revoke. In the world, people get stripped of their status if they don’t comply with societal rules, but with Christ, that doesn’t happen. Once saved, always saved. Jesus overcame sin with His death on the cross, and every day we follow Him, He shows us how to find victory over ours. Through Jesus, we become new creatures, leaving our sinful ways behind us and living fully in Him.


Jesus makes us His for eternity.


Lord, thank You for making us permanent citizens of heaven. Help us to live well for You.  Give us the self-control and strength to overcome our sinful ways and represent You well on Earth.
