With exceeding joy…

          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, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen. Jude 24, 25

          Stop.  Please go back and re-read Jude 24, 25.

          You have probably read these verses numerous times and perhaps, like me, you missed this key encouragement.

          Jesus is able to keep YOU from stumbling… AND Jesus is able to present YOU faultless Present you where? – Before the presence of HIS GLORY – THE FATHER And get this… with exceeding JOY.

          Can you picture that?  Jesus your Savior presenting you to the Father with EXCEEDING JOY.  How precious a thought.

          Jesus has great JOY in keeping you from stumbling. Jesus has great JOY, exceeding JOY in presenting you faultless before the throne.  OH! What a sight that will be!

          That thought blesses my heart. I hope it blesses your heart today too.

Blessings,  Diane
