He Keeps Me.

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:
Jude 1-2 & 24 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied…. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:
I always wonder as I read the pages of God’s Word what people do with certain Bible verses when they believe you can somehow lose your salvation. Jude 1 says I’m preserved in Jesus Christ and called. If I am preserved in Christ, how can I lose that preservation? Not only preserved but also called or assured of it. It’s obvious then Jesus would have to somehow be weakened, and allow me to slip through His protection.
Jude 24 says; “unto Him that is able to keep you from falling.” This person would be Christ and the Holy Spirit who would be able to keep me from falling. However, it does not stop there. He will not only keep me from falling, but will present me faultless before the presence of His glory. If He can keep me from falling, will preserve me, and will present me, how can I lose this precious Salvation?
The only explanation for someone who walks contrary to the Word of God for long periods, for someone who has little or no remorse and a person who will not yield to the chastising of the Holy Spirit is…THEY WERE MOST LIKELY NEVER SAVED TO BEGIN WITH! We cannot break free from God; we’re not that strong. A person can’t be un-preserved. God’s word says they are preserved. The only explanation is they were never preserved, never kept, never truly in Christ.
CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:
The Bible tells us often to examine ourselves to see if we are in the Lord or not. Not because we can slip out of His Almighty grip, but because many people never place themselves in His grip to begin with. They never believed in Christ; they just don’t want to go to hell. Give Christ your all and let Him preserve you.
