God Keeps Us
Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault. All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.”
Jude 1:24-25 NLT
What a concluding statement!!! God is the One who keeps us. We aren't the ones who are sustaining ourselves. God has saved us, God keeps us, and God should get all the glory. We stand before Him faultless! That is a difficult concept for us to grasp, yet it is true. God's Word says it. When God's Word says it, you can count on it! Its's done! “For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.” Colossians 1:19-22 NLT Can you imagine the joy that awaits us when we stand before Christ and He ushers us into His eternal kingdom? My mind can only imagine what that is going to be like. To see Jesus face and to live in the place He has prepared for us will be to arrive everywhere I've only dreamed of going and to see everything I've only dreamed of seeing. “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” John 14:1-3 NLT “No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.” Revelation 22:3-5 NLT In His presence is fullness of joy. “You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.” Psalms 16:11 NASB This world has Satan, sin, sickness, sorrow, and suffering. One day soon, this will all change. There will be no more Satan, sin, sickness, sorrow, or suffering. We will dwell in the presence of Almighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ! He alone is God! All glory, majesty, power, and authority are His before all time, now, and forever. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 NL
