Now, to the one with enough power to prevent you from stumbling into sin and bring you faultless before his glorious presence to stand before him with ecstatic delight, to the only God our Savior, through our Lord Jesus Christ, be endless glory and majesty, great power and authority—from before he created time, now, and throughout all the ages of eternity. Amen! Jude 24-25 TPT
I love any scripture that reminds me of the powerful God I serve and the way Jude closes his letter reflects that. The one with enough power to prevent me from stumbling back into sin again. Now that right there is HUGE! I know I can’t in my own ability, but when I rely on the power of Jesus to do it, what’s done is done and can’t be undone.
But get this picture solidified in your mind right now; not only is His blood powerful enough to keep you from sin, but it brings you faultless before His presence to stand in ecstatic delight. Faultless! As if you’ve never sinned. Washed completely clean. Even when you run through a mud puddle it doesn’t stick to your shoes. Now that’s awesome!
I don’t know about you but when I think about just that, it makes me want to fall on my face and cry. What great love the Father had for us. He saw we needed a savior and sent His only son to make us clean and keep us clean. To make us healed and keep us healed. To make us rich and keep us rich. To make us forgiven and keep us forgiven. Our part is to believe it and receive it.
“I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus, the Nazarene and wonder how He could love me a sinner, condemned, unclean. How marvelous, how wonderful, and my song shall ever be; How marvelous, how wonderful is my saviors love for me!” My Saviors Love, Chas Gabriel 1905
I believe! I receive everything You purchase for me. Thank You for this truly amazing gift which included everything I would ever need for life. What a well thought out plan! I give You all praise, honor and glory in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
