“Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]–To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (So be it).” (Jude 24-25)
The Word is just full of good news! How many of us know what it is to stumble and fall short? Everyone has at one time or another, yet here we see a great promise! God is able to keep us blameless and without fault. How is it possible in this day and age where evil abound so greatly? We are bombarded with sinful images everyone we look. Evil is applauded and righteousness is scorned by the world culture. How can we get through this world without getting dirty?
The Blood of Jesus washes us any time we mess up. Repentance turns the shower on to be washed in His Blood. It washes us white as snow…we are indeed unblemished, blameless and faultless before the Presence of God the Father. One day we will all stand before Him. Those who are washed in the Blood of the Lamb will be spotless. The FAther will not see any sin or guilt because of the Blood. Beloved, when you fall or stumble or fall short, don’t despair or let guilt drive you away from Him…instead run to Him and repent and let the Blood of Jesus wash it all away….after all, isn’t that why He came and died?
