Jesus keeps us from stumbling. From losing our footing and helps us stand firm in our salvation so that we don’t have to guess about it. I know sometimes we might have doubts and wonder how God ever forgave our past, (some of us had to be forgiven a little more than others) but that’s exactly what He did. He forgave us and presented us faultless before God our Savior with no shame or guilt attached.

   Some people will forgive us but will constantly remind us of the offense we have caused, but not God. In fact, He forgives us and then leaves no lasting residue. None! But then He even goes an undeserved step further and leaves us with exceeding joy. Why? Because He alone is wise knowing that His forgiveness is settled and done. Forgiven AND forgotten. Be glory and majesty, dominion and power to Him!

   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 1:24-25 NKJV
