We all love our name… really we do, that’s is how we have known it was time for dinner growing up! Ha, Even if that name called was not the name on our birth certificates we love that name. All through our life our name is used in applications, and interviews and report cards. Even at Chick-Fl-a they ask us what our name is for the order. We love our names. Luke 16 Jesus tells the Pharisees what he thinks about them and their separated hearts and heads. The “rich” man and Lazarus is as the story is told in Sunday Schools. This “rich” man is not in fact Rich at all, he is currently as when the story was told in hell paying the price for his sin’s. He had a redeemer that paid his sins and was revealed to him in the Old Testament, but this man did not accept this. He trusted in his own works and “fell short of the Glory of God”. Today, he is still paying for his sins. Today he is still, as in Luke 16, asking for someone to tell his living relatives about Christ. Today, we have a name, will we in heaven? Revelations 20:15 “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”
