We are Being Kept by God

We are Being Kept by God

Jude 1:24-25Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Psalm 121:5, “The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.”

Jude speaks to the believer reminding him that God is his keeper, and He is the only One Who can keep us from falling. God does this in multiple ways, even when we think that life has disappointed us, it may well be God’s mighty hand protecting us from something which might be harmful whether in the long or short run. How do we arrive at such a place whereby God will be pleased with our efforts? What do we need to do? Surely, God requires some effort from us with all the inherent abilities which He has given to mankind. No one can say that He does not know how to at least begin to understand God’s desire because He has made this plain through the Commandments given to us (Exodus 20). This includes multiple precepts and directives which are valuable for life and godliness (I Peter 1:3). While we try to keep ourselves practically, we need God’s help through the Holy Spirit to live a life which is pleasing unto Him through sanctification (Romans 12:1-2). There is no other way to please God so that at the end we can hear, “Well done thou good and faithful servant.” This is when we stand “faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy.”
According to Paul, “And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:” (Colossians 1:21-22). To continue go to ARTICLES
