Luke 10

Luke 10:17 & 20 “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through they name.” Vs. 20 (Jesus replied) “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

Jesus tells them that they are rejoicing over the wrong things; he commands them to rejoice in the fact that they are saved, and not that they could cast out demons through the name of Jesus.

They were excited about what God had done through them; Jesus tells them that it’s not the things here on earth that we need to rejoice over but rather that our names are written in heaven.


Father I thank you for sending Jesus to die on the cross that through his blood that he shed on Calvary I could be forgiven of my sins and spend eternity and beyond with you… Help me to not become bogged down with the temporal things of this world, but to keep myself wholly for you and the things that you have and will call me to do…
