Without a Single Fault
“Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.” Jude 1:24NLT
This verse brings me so much peace! As a human, who makes about a billion mistakes a year, I don’t have the power to be perfect on my own. With all my might and will power I can try to be perfect as He is perfect. Within 2 seconds flat I’ve done something that doesn’t please the Lord and makes me feel as though I’m “falling away.”
I sometimes fear standing before Jesus on judgement day fully exposed in all my sin. In some ways I’m right…I’ll never be “good enough” on my own. It took a VERY HIGH PRICE, in the form of Jesus on the Cross, to pay my debts. The sinless spotless lamb stood in my place and now I am His spotless bride. To accept His blood covering my sins is the true fight and the enemy knows how to position it to seem like I am excluded from that somehow.
Remember the devil is a liar and will be in the lake of fire soon for all eternity 👊🏼🔥
I love the last bit that says He will bring us into His Presence with great joy without a single fault. Every word in that sentence makes me feel as though I belong despite my faults and sins! I’m chosen by God to be in His Presence. And it’s not begrudgingly that He brings me in either. I’m not just who is left over or who happens to be available. God WANTS to bring me in. He does so with great joy. And when I come in He sees me without a single fault. What a day that will be.
If you are struggling to believe God wants you to come into His Presence meditate on this verse. Let His love for you and the truth of His word renew your mind. The truth is you will be ushered into Gods presence with joy! Without a single fault.
