“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy” Jude 24

Our Lord Jesus is able to keep us from stumbling and to present us faultless before the presence of God’s glory. There is so much rich truth contained in this verse to expound upon, but to just sit and contemplate how the Lord presents us faultless is amazing!

When we begin to think about our own failures or sins we’ve committed against God, it’s almost unbelievable that such a claim can be made about us being presented before a holy and righteous God.  As we grow and learn more of what the Lord Jesus has accomplished through His finished work at Calvary, we see that He can rightly present us faultless since the Lord Jesus became sin that we might become righteous (2 Cor. 5:21).  He has also removed our transgressions as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12).  The Scriptures continue by likening us to Abraham since he believed God and He accounted to him for righteousness (James 2:23).

How thankful and joyful we should be when we who used to be considered sinners and enemies of God can now be presented faultless before His glory.
